Octave Chanute to Wilbur Wright

Chicago, August 25, 1908

Permit me to make you acquainted with Captain A. Hildebrandt, who you will remember as the first European who did you full justice in the various articles which he published in the German papers upon his return from America last year.

You will confer a favor upon me by giving him full opportunities for witnessing your experiments. You will find him entirely reliable.

Octave Chanute to Wilbur Wright, October 7, 1908
