Description'Dear Sir,
It has been suggested that you might be willing to make up a small exhibit of models of successful types of flying machines at the Royal Society's Soiree on May 12th, or, if not convenient then, at the Ladies' Soiree, to be held on June 24th.
I should be glad to hear from you whether it would be feasible to arrange an exhibit of this nature.'
