"My First Ride in an Airship", undated

 File — Box: 4265.004, oversize-folder: 1

Scope and Contents

This file contains nine pages of a typed story (with handwritten corrections) in which two high-school girls are approached by a man who asks them to watch over his vehicle, which the narrator describes at different times as an "artificial bird," an "airship," and an "airoplane." In the story, the girls figure out how to fly the machine, run into a mountain, and enter a cave, eventually realizing they are in the "infernal regions," where they meet "His Satanic Majesty."
