Description'Dear Mr Petavel,
Dr shaw is kindly arranging a general exhibit for May 13th illustrative of Upper Air Investigation work. It is thought that Manchester University would like to co-operate by sending something which would contribute to the success of the exhibit. If this can be done, will your kindly fill up the enclosed form, in order to give some ideas of the scope of what would come from the Glossop Moor Observatory: and perhaps your will also communicate direct with Dr Shaw.'
