TitleLetter; J. Percy Maule, Town Clerk, Huntingdon, to M.D. Barkley, Hinchingbrooke Estate Office.
DescriptionStates that it is now clear that to provide an aerodrome for Huntingdon, the Town must be prepared to form a Company. Believes that if Lord Sandwich and the other owners could reduce the rent for the first few years, the company would be placed on a sure foundation. Has heard that some aviators wish to use the Portholme for the forthcoming contest "of the World's Record Flight for 6 hours without descending."
