Mr. W.W. Wood
c/o Riker & Hegeman Drug Stores
340 W. 4th St.,
New York City.

Dear Sir: 

It is a pleasure to write you on behalf of Mr. Paul Studensky, who, I learn from him, is seeking employment at one of your stores.

Mr. Studensky was in the employ of this company, in the capacity of expert aviator, for over a year. During that time we were able to form a very definite opinion of his character and qualifications.  We found him at all times able and willing to do any work that was asked of him and not only absolutely honest and trustworthy but extremely loyal to the interests of his employers.  His invariable good nature, often under trying circumstances, won for him and for this company many useful friends.  The only reason that Mr. Studensky is not now in our employ is the fact that we stopped giving exhibitions, and therefore had no further need for any of our aviators.

If you decide to give Mr. Studdensky employment in your company, I feel sure you will have every reason to be pleased with your favorable decision.

Yours very truly,
National Aeroplane Company
