Was this balloonist someone who operates a hot air balloon?

Did he meet the balloonist face to face? communicate with him in some other way? Were they even alive at the same time? Did they live in the same country?

Did the balloonist just fly around the world?

So, the balloonist did something which "he" appreciated? And "he", in turn, did something to thank him for it?

One of the Montgolfier brothers relevant?

Did his profession have to do with science? politics? law? literature? the arts? entertainment? crime?

Did the balloonist have a profession other than being a balloonist? If so, same questions about it.

So, the balloonist did something which "he" appreciated? yes, for svv of "appreciated" And "he", in turn, did something to thank him for it? no - by the time OH had cause to be grateful to the balloonist, the latter had been dead for some years

One of the Montgolfier brothers relevant? no

Did his profession have to do with medicine? engineering? inventing things?

Is the fact that the balloonist was a balloonist even relevant? Was his gratefulness the result of something the balloonist did entirely in the context of his non-balloon profession? or outside the context of ballooning, anyway?

Is balloon flying at all relevant for "him"? or was it while he did something "completely different" he was grateful to a balloonist?

Was he grateful for something the balloonist discovered? invented? written? something the balloonist did while flying balloon?

Recap?

OH, a man who lived in the 19th century, had casue to be grateful to a balloonist, who also lived in the 19th century (though not for very much of it).

OH's gratitude has nothing to do with the balloonist's aeronautical activities as such - although it is relevant that he flew balloons - but with OH's profession, about which you know only that it was in some way connected with "science".


Guess who's back *back back* back again *ain.. ain...* and welcome back, Nagrom :)

Is he a mathematician? a geographer? a traveller (in some appropriate sense of the word)?
Relevant where the balloonist was flying? if so: in Canada? Alaska?
Was the balloonists profession related to ballooning? did he do it while in the balloon? (like: taking photos? writing poems?)
Napoleon relevant?

He was grateful for something the balloonist did while flying balloon, right? was what he did something you only could do while flying a balloon? something not at all connected to flying balloons? something that could had been done while on the ground?

He was grateful for something the balloonist did while flying balloon, right? yesish - that is, what the balloonist did would not have been possible had he not been a ballonist was what he did something you only could do while flying a balloon? no something not at all connected to flying balloons? it had a connection with balloons, but not with flight something that could had been done while on the ground? it had to be done on the ground
