Abstract: We consider an arbitrary noncyclic subgroup of the additive group $ {\mathbf{Q}}$ of rational numbers, denoted by $ {{\mathbf{Q}}_{\mathbf{a}}}$, and its compact character group $ {\Sigma _{\mathbf{a}}}$. For $ 1 < p < \infty $, an abstract form of Marcel Riesz's theorem on conjugate series is known. For $ f$ in $ {\mathfrak{L}_p}({\Sigma _{\mathbf{a}}})$, there is a function $ \tilde{f}$ in $ {\mathfrak{L}_p}({\Sigma _{\mathbf{a}}})$ whose Fourier transform $ (\tilde{f})\hat{\empty}(\alpha )$ at $ \alpha $ in $ {{\mathbf{Q}}_{\mathbf{a}}}$ is $ - i\,\operatorname{sgn}\,\alpha \hat{f}(\alpha )$. We show in this paper how to construct $ \tilde{f}$ explicitly as a pointwise limit almost everywhere on $ {\Sigma_{\mathbf{a}}}$ of certain harmonic functions, as was done by Riesz for the circle group. Some extensions of this result are also presented.
