Telegram to Otto Praeger, September 4, 1918

Description:

The day before the famed New York to Chicago pathfinder flights commences on September 5, 1918, Lipsner writes a Post Office Telegram to Otto Praeger, Second Assistant Postmaster General, in Washington, D.C. He notes that he received Praeger’s prior Western Union Telegram that all was one hundred percent, and he confirms that everything is okay in New York City, too.

John A. Jordan, Post Office Department representative, will be going to Bryan, Ohio. Louis Gerston, senior Post Office Department aviator, remains in Cleveland in charge. [Gerston was designed by Lipsner as official observer of the Cleveland port of the New York to Chicago trip]. Finally, Lipsner says that he will be leaving for Chicago tonight.
