Typewritten letter from H.E. Wimperis, Air Ministry, to Frederick Lanchester

Scope and Content

Thanks Lanchester for his letter. Expresses great regard for his work. Promised to look into the matter of use made of the “true plumb indicator” but is not sure whether instruments used are derived from Lanchester’s invention or a German variant of the same. Sorry to hear that the radio enterprise has proved “sticky” [i.e. Lanchester’s Laboratories Ltd].
