TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to [William] Bell Dawson Esquire, Superintendent of the Tidal Survey; Ottawa, Canada
Date10 February 1922
DescriptionAsks Mr. [William] Bell Dawson whether he is looking to publish the tidal constants with the Society and the Coast and Geodestic Survey of the United States, or exclusively with the Society. Notes that only in the event of the latter would the Society consider undertaking publication, and even then the work would need to be communicated to the Society by a Fellow. Suggests Professor Horace Lamb as a possible communicator.
