Date8 December 1927
DescriptionEncloses a copy of a letter from Sir Joseph Larmor, dealing with the question of Newton's writings. Expresses doubt over whether it is worth publishing Larmor's letters as they are mainly on theological topics. States that republishing the Scientific Works of Newton could work in connection with the Tercententary, but some papers may be difficult to obtain and does not have an idea what the costs may be.
