They were Arthur R. Stone and Harry N. Atwood. They came down on the marsh near the old Mystic turnpike within 15 minutes of each other and they lay for several hours about half a mile apart. Stone alighted first. While over the Charlestown navy yard a pipe from the gasoline tank burst. He realized at once that he was bound to descend so he manouvred for a good place to come to the ground.

When Messrs Burgess and Lawson reached the scene a thorough examination of the engine and the machine itself was made. Lawson said that the engine was all right. Owing to the delay, however Atwood decided he would withdraw from the race, as he could not hope to finish in any sort of time. It was different with Stone's monoplane. While it lay within 100 yards of the Mystic turnpike, there is a deep ditch in the marsh over which it could not be hauled to the road itself, so it had to be dismantled on the marsh and taken piece by piece to the roadway.
