TitleLetter from Frank Watson Dyson, Royal Observatory, Greenwich, to Charles Vernon Boys
Date21 May 1921
DescriptionGives thanks for his very pleasant Whitsun in the company of Boys and his family. He is sending the level which he will be glad to have filled with the liquid. Asks if his enclosed letter to Cyril Johnston [not present] is all right. Dyson tried Boys's equilateral triangle on the train journey and found it 'a most beautiful bit of geometry'.
