Page from Milton Wright's Diary - Reference to Wilbur's Telegram

In this page from Milton Wright's diary - on December 15, 1903 - we see a reference to the telegram he received from his son (Wilbur) reporting the aborted attempt at powered flight (which took place the day before at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina). 

Although the first attempt failed due to a "misjudgment at start," Wilbur tells his father, in this referenced telegram:  "Success assured.  Keep quiet."
