TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor [John William] Nicholson, Chairman of the Mathematics Committee and FRS
Date10 February 1921
DescriptionInforms Professor [John William] Nicholson that [Alfred Chaston] Chapman agreed with him on the Street paper, that the last part is worth less space than it is being given. Notes that he has asked Street whether he would be willing to condense this section, and he replied in the negative. Asks Professor Nicholson for his opinion on the matter. Also explains a situation encountered regarding the Jeffrey paper: that its conclusion has already been reached in previous research. Suggests, however, that as Jeffrey used an entirely different method to reach the conclusion, it is not a problem and should still be passed for printing in the 'Proceedings'.
