TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Dr. [Henry] Forster Morley, Director of the International Catalogue of Scientific Literature
Date8 December 1921
DescriptionSuggests sending out the summons as soon as possible, on the grounds that a detailed agenda will follow soon after. Notes that he makes this suggestion as a member of the Executive Committee [of the International Catalogue] and not as a Secretary of the Society, underlining the importance of there being no sense that the Society is organising this Conference. Also notes that it would be best to secure a room for the Conference prior to sending out the summons and suggests Dr. [Henry] Forster Morley get in touch with the Belgian Academy or Monsieur [Georges] Lecointe of the Royal Observatory of Belgium.
