TitleCopy letter from Henry Hallett Dale, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Sir [Albert Charles] Seward, FRS
Date22 January 1926
DescriptionGive thanks for the letter for being able to reopen the question. States that other solutions have been attempted in relation to [Horace] Lamb's question, including approaching Sir William Hardy, after Lenox-Conyngham refused, [to represent Britain at the Pan-Pacific Congress]. That news from Trinity College through [Richard] Glazebrook suggests the issue may be able to be solved, and that the Geodesy Committee can find a competent deputy.
