filling it for W. D. Bannister, a citizen of Adrian, who was to make his
first ascent that day; he did not like to go alone, and Mr. Thurston went
with him. They ascended from Adrian, Sept. 16, 1S58, on the occasion of
a county fair; had a successful send off, and came down about two miles
away. The balloon lay along the ground, and Mr. Thurston took hold of
the top of it, and told Bannister to untie the neck of the balloon, and then
unhook the basket or car; but instead of doing so he unhooked the car,
and being thus relieved of weight the balloon began to ascend, and Mr.
Bannister caught hold of the neck, and both were carried up. Mr. Bannis-
ter saw the danger and let go, but Mr. Thurston, thinking the neck of the
balloon had been untied, and would soon be relieved- of the gas, held on,
