TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor [Godfrey Harold] Hardy, FRS
Date5 April 1921
DescriptionAssures Professor [Godfrey Harold] Hardy that his question about the effect of the Repaprations Bill on the purchase and exchange of German Periodicals will be laid before Council in due course. Notes that, if Council were to act, they would likely do so on the behalf of all societies of the United Kingdom dependent on German literature. With regards to [Srinivasa Aaiyangar] Ramanujan's obituary notice, suggests that Professor Hardy slightly alter that which he has already written in order that the two do not appear identical at first glance.
