Manuscript notes by Cooper, 3 pp, the first headed "Camera details" covering the failure of film transport and light streaks on all film which were to be corrected prior the actual flight; the second giving number of film rolls and camera types needed; the third reading simply "FLT: Debriefing: 1) Film evaluation FIASCO: 2)." The first two inscribed and signed "notes by Gordon Cooper."
