TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Prof. [George Neville] Watson, FRS
Date18 February 1926
DescriptionAsks for [George Neville] Watson to look through an application sent to the Government Grants board from the [Scientific and Industrial] Research Department, as the Chairman of the Board, [Phillip Herbert] Cowell is abroad. The application is by Dr. [Edward Lindsay] lnce for a grant of £57. 15. 0 for a Brunsvign calculating machine. Jeans is not favourable to the application as he sees Ince's publication in the Edinburgh Proceedings as 'muddled' and 'positively amusing.'
