January 3, 1936

I, John Ciglar, doing business at 2362 Fairfield Avenue, Bridgeport, Connecticut, do declare the following to be fact to the best of my knowledge and belief;

I was present In the summer of 1901 or 1902, probably July or August of one of those years, when one of the planes constructed by the late Gustave whitehead rose from the ground to a height of approximately twelve feet and traveled under Its o»n motor power a distance of approximately thirty feet before It fell to the ground and burat Into flames. The plane was bi-plane, and the flight occurred on Pine Street.
