Upon their arrival they were greeted by Mr. Frost and other members of the Observatory. President Pardo of Peru, the United States Minister, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, extended courtesies to the party and they were given the freedom of the port. The expedition will make their headquarters at Arequipa, from which place they will make excursions of several months' duration in order to study the manners and customs of the South American Indians of that region.
