The Sextants [etc etc?] are of course all right I intended to have ordered legs for the Compass  - The Chains are a little to [too] heavy ( but not too strong) - Are they steel. They appear very soft  - My impression was that steel chains might be made about the substance of stout chains in common use - and so tempered as to be very tough and [?] but if [word crossed out] steel they are to order and the fault my own.  I am using one of the new ones now it is stretching a little, this is in a great measure caused by its weight. You must know some of my work is over very rough broken country and at times it brings the man up all standing.  It bothers me too when I have to chain myself as the pins are obliged to be large to match and what with the chain The pins book my hands are more than full
