Letter, Maurice John Bernard Davy to Orville Wright, April 1, 1941 During World War II, while the German air force bombed London, M. J. B. Davy, director of the Science Museum in London, wrote to Orville to assure him that the 1903 machine was safe. The historic plane had been on display in England for thirteen years and Davy felt the need to explain to Orville why the machine had not been evacuated to another location. He describes one close call at the museum which the plane survived and does his best to detail how the British are protecting the flyer.
