Subject: Aerial - Albeit Way High - Preconcert'd Telegraphic Codes

Message Detail:
Rich,

Speaking about aerial codes, perhaps we could entice Mark to assist in creating a supplimental page to our aeronautics section showing the pre-concerted symbols and key to the code Thaddeus Lowe may have used when aloft by dangling such forms from his wicker balloon basket.

The fact that this was required at all seems to indicate that Lowe had intended many ground observers to see his coded reports other than telegraphers and signallists.

Somehow this sorta sounds like a project which may interest our own Professor Knapp. Perhaps we can discuss it with Kevin during one of our up-coming monthly first Wednesday night aeronautic chats sessions at 7 pm EST?

See you there.

Walt
