TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Prof. Baker, FRS
Date19 June 1924
DescriptionReplies regarding Belopolsky's suggestion. States that there was a Committee in England, set up to send scientific books and literature which had been printed during [the First World] War to Russia. As the task was difficult, it was eventually taken out of the hands of the Royal Society and later disbanded altogether. States the suggestion will be put to the Council but warns that Belopolsky has a reputation of starting schemes and leaving them to others.
