Product Description

WILBUR WRIGHT He signs a $159.72 check (as "Wright Brothers") to the law firm which incorporated the Wright Brothers Aeroplane Company and represented the Wrights in their lawsuit against competitor Glenn Curtiss. Check filled out and signed: "Wright Brothers", 6¼x2¼. Dayton, Ohio, 1910 December 7. Drawn on the Winters National Bank, payable to Nicoll Anable Lindsay & Fuller for $159.72. Endorsed by Nicoll Anable Lindsay & Fuller on verso. During 1904 and 1905, the Wrights built and tested new planes and engines. An improved Flyer II was flown near Dayton, Ohio in 1904. They began designing Flyer III. At Simms Station, Ohio, on October 5, 1905, Wilbur flew for 24 miles in 38 minutes, landing only when their new Flyer III gas tank ran dry. The Flyer III was powered by a 15 horse powered engine. This was the Wright brothers' first flight of more than a half hour and renewed their confidence in man's ability to sustain flight. They had invented the first fully practical airplane that could turn, bank, circle and fly figure eights. On May 30, 1912, Wilbur Wright died of typhoid fever at the age of 45. In 1909, the Wrights had filed suit against aircraft manufacturer Glenn Curtiss, for patent violation. This lawsuit was finally resolved (in the Wrights' favor), two years after Wilbur's death. The New York law firm of Nicoll, Anable, Lindsay & Fuller represented the Wrights in their suit, and also handled the incorporation of the Wright Brothers Aeroplane Company (1910), capitalized by some of the biggest names in finance, including Cornelius Vanderbilt. The firm had previously represented notable shareholders in the new company, including August Belmont. Circular cancellation hole has partly obliterated the "Wri" in Wright. ¾x¾-inch paper loss at left blank margin. Bank stamps on verso, touches "Wright Broth" of signature. Lightly soiled. Fine condition. - Please contact us if you have any questions or require additional information. DOCUMENT 6081
