In an attempt to prove all the identities given in Ramanujan's first two letters to G. H. Hardy, G. N. Watson devoted a paper to the evaluation of G1353. At the end of his paper, Watson remarked that his proof was not rigorous as he had assumed certain identities (see (1.1) and (1.2)) which he found empirically. In this paper, we use class field theory, Galois theory and Kronecker's limit formula to justify Watson's assumptions. We shall then use our results to compute some new values of Gn.
