Octave Chanute to Wilbur Wright

Chicago, December 11, 1905

I enclose a French clipping just received. Do not be in a hurry to send it back.

You will note that Captain Ferber was unable to preserve silence, and that a very pretty controversy has been started. This probably is the inauguration of publicity.

Did you write a letter to the Aerophile?
