Abstract: Let $ D$ be a convex domain in $ \mathbb{C}$. Let $ a_k > 0$ be summable constants and let $ z_k \in D$. If the $ z_k$ converge sufficiently rapidly to $ \zeta \in \partial D$ from within an appropriate Stolz angle, then the function $ \sum_{k=1}^\infty a_k /( z - z_k ) $ has infinitely many zeros in $ D$. An example shows that the hypotheses on the $ z_k$ are not redundant and that two recently advanced conjectures are false.
