Octave Chanute to Wilbur Wright

Chicago, January 26, 1904

My attention was called yesterday to a clever piece of "journalism" by which you are made to appear to have given an interview to the Chicago Chronicle. I enclose it herewith.

You are lucky to have the plans of your machine made for you by the newspaper men. This gives you time to get your patents.
