Eddington [Cambridge,] 1926 Jan 22 My dear Colleague First let me say that it was a great pleasure to me that the Royal Astronomical Society decided to confer its Gold Medal on you. You have no doubt received a letter from the President, Jeans. I had not much to do with this decision because the real decision was taken at a Council meeting during my absence in Leiden dur- ing December, but I was hoping that they would do this. I gathered in Leiden that you would find it too much of a strain to come to Eng- land so I have not written earlier to press you to come. But if you should be feeling more inclined to undertake a visit and could take the opportunity to come to stay with me in Cambridge my sister and I would be mos[t] delighted to welcome you. But I do not want to urge you against your better judgment if the strain is too much in your present state of health. I have been trying to grapple with the Born-Jordan model of the atom lately. I suppose that in some points it must be right but at present I cannot raise any great enthusiasm for it it will be a horrible creature to fit in to the rest of the world. Yours most sincerely A. S. Eddington ALS. [9 287]. There are perforations for a loose-leaf binder at the left margin of the document. Writ- ten on letterhead “Observatory, Cambridge.” In November 1919, the Council of the Royal Astronomical Society had nominated Einstein for its gold medal, but the society refused to confirm the nomination in its vote of 9 January 1920 (see Arthur S. Eddington to Einstein, 21 January 1921 [Vol. 9, Doc. 271], and Vol. 9, Introduction, p. li). James Jeans. See Born and Jordan 1925b.
