Octave Chanute to Wilbur Wright

Chicago, July 13, 1905

I herewith enclose a copy of my article for the New Standard Encyclopedia which was made for you.1

Please advise me promptly if you wish to suggest changes.

I hope that your experiments have resulted to your entire satisfaction, and I shall be glad to learn about them.

Best respects to your sister and to Orville.

1 The article contributed by Chanute was on the "Flying Machine." The brief mention of the Wrights stated that they "took up the question in 1900" and referred to their successful power flights of 1903.
