TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to David Prain, Treasurer of the Royal Society
Date12 March 1920
DescriptionInforms David Prain that the Permanent Eclipse Committee are rather distressed that the grant they previously applied for is too small. The £200 previously granted will only provide about half of the apparatus that they need. Encloses 'the facts' of the matter and hopes Sir Prain can see his way to increasing this grant.
