TitleCopy letter from [James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of] the Royal Society; to to Prof. [Thomas Renton] Elliott, FRS
Date24 March 1926
DescriptionInforms [Thomas Renton] Elliott that there is no harm in nominating Cushing as a Foreign Member, but warns that the standards for becoming one are different to becoming a Fellow, as it is limited to 50 and there are Nobel prize winners who have not been considered to become a Foreign Member. Also updates Elliott concerning [H.R] Hewer's paper ['Studies in colour changes of fish. - Part II]', that [Charles] Tate Regan has reported favourably on it with the suggestion that it be condensed. States that the paper is now with [Ernest William] MacBride, who communicated the paper, who will arrange for Hewer to see Elliott so the physiological part of the paper can be dealt with. The signature has faded almost completely.
