f Note.aThe Sections on the upper part of the Map were determined by means of a sensitive and well constructed aneroid. Careful readings of the instrument were made every quarter of an hour during the journey, on elephants, from Kr to Chumpon, and the levels deduced from these observations were corrected by means of atmospheric curves, carefully determined at both extremities of the route. Thus, on the i8th of February, a curve was determined at Kr ; igth and 20th on line of march ; and on the 21 st a second curve was found at Chimpon. The mean of these curves gave the correction, and the elevation of Kr Pass so determined, corresponded exactly with that found by the levelling instruments of the French engineers, and also to the height marked on Lieitenant Bagges1 Map.
