|Copy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Dr. [Selig] Brodetsky
|11 June 1926
|Informs [Selig] Brodetsky of the decision of the Council not to broaden the Tercentenary of Newton's birth to a national scale. States that the main, but not only reason was that there was likely to be a National, if not, International celebrations in 1942. Therefore, there is no need to appoint a representative to the National Committee as suggested.
