Dear Mr.Knabenshue:-

Your letter of February 23rd was forwarded to me here and therefore my reply has been delayed.

All of the members of the Wright family were sorry that it was not possibly for you to attend the ceremony in Washington on December 17th. We felt that it was the fulfillment of a wish of Orville Wright's and we were particularly anxious to have as many of his early associates present as possibly.

We, of course, have heard Uncle Orv express himself many times on the subject of a movie on the Wright Brothers.

Transcription Notes:
It should say "Dear Mr. Roy Knabenshue"
