    Hi Carolyn. My name is Kaye Asbury, I live in Melbourne Australia.
    While researching my family history today I found your article
    ” A journal from a mystery man”
    What a thrill for me to read your article.
    Archibald Blair is my 3rd Great Grandfather. His family has a very interesting story through the early centuries.
    His brother Robert Blair 1752-1828 was also into astronomy : Robert Blair was the first Regius Professor of Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh (1785 until death). He invented the aplanatic lens. This was a significant step in reducing the aberration in optical systems. He also experimented with hollow lenses, holding different solutions.
    My husband and I traveled to Cornwall and Sithney to find out information about Archibald but were only able to uncover his will. Which filled in what happened to his children, who were only 6 and 8 at the time of Archibald death. Their mother had passed away earlier in 1811.
    If you are interested in learning some more about the family I am only to happy to email you or if you wish I’m able to ring England at no cost.
    Perhaps one day we will visit Cornwall again I’d love to view the Journal.
    Kind Regards
