Approximations to the logarithms of certain rational numbers
In a recent paper  methods were introduced for investigating the accuracy with which certain algebraic numbers may be approximated by rational numbers. It is the main purpose of the present paper to deduce, using similar techniques, results concerning the accuracy with which the natural logarithms of certain rational numbers may be approximated by rational numbers, or, more generally, by algebraic numbers of bounded degree.
