TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Sir Thomas Holland, FRS
Date28 May 1925
DescriptionInforms Sir Thomas Holland that, regarding Holland's letter, the principal supporters of the candidate in question would not want to withdraw their signatures, and that raising the matter at a Council meeting is difficult as the Council will have changed by the next Fellowship election. Discusses how to go about this secretly, and asks if Jeans can keep Holland's letter, with the names cut off so as to make it anonymous.
