Wright Again

A Day Of Rest - Sunday, September 7, 1902

The History: Out of respect for their father, Bishop Milton Wright, the Wright's respected Sunday as a day of rest and did not work, although letter writing and reading was allowed. Wilbur wrote two letters, including one to his father, and took them to Kitty Hawk in the afternoon to mail. Bill Tate visited in the morning and ended up staying for dinner.

Even years later after the first flight, when the Wrights could have earn a great deal of money by flying weekend exhibitions they did not fly on Sundays.
