TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Prof. [David Meredith Seares] Watson, FRS
Date25 June 1924
DescriptionAsk Watson to look through the paper by S.C. Mitra from a Mathematical point of view. States that both Taylor and Lamb have been through the paper and agree that there is nothing wrong with it on hydrodynamical grounds, but feel there is something they can't put a finger on. Jeans mentions that the paper is the third edition and has given the Royal Society trouble. [See Hydrodynamical Hindoo/ the Indian]
