Octave Chanute to Wilbur Wright

Chicago, May 30, 1904

The time for entry in the aeronautical contests is to be extended from time to time as seems most judicious.

I saw Mr. Willard Smith this morning. He has your letter and will write to you.

Mr. Santos Dumont is to sail on the 11th of June, and will try to make his first flight within that month.

Mr. Herring proposes to enter the race but is not ready to make his deposit.
