Octave Chanute to Wilbur Wright

Chicago, November 7, 1905

I received this morning a letter from Capt. Ferber,1 of which I enclose a faithful translation.

I also enclose my answer to him, and a translation of that.2 You had better compare them.

If the answer is what you desire, please mail it. If it is not shaped as you like, return it to me, with indication of your desires.

I should like to have copies of your late correspondence with our own War Department3 if you feel that you can trust my judgment to use it, or not to use it, as circumstances may warrant.
