    Dear Frank,
    Thank you for your offer.
    I already downloaded and printed parts of this
    almanach (intro, manual and one month worth
    of data) by spending more than an hour on mouse-clicking.
    What I have is probably enough to get a general impression
    on the precision of the Lunar data in early XIX century
    almanacs.
    I don't think I need the whole thing.
    
    For the discussion of Thompson's observations
    it would be desirable to compare the data on the specific
    dates of his observations. These are in 1800 and 1801 almanacs.
    I am not sure who has them, but my impression that someone
    from this list has 1800 almanac.
