Attached is a 1910 magazine article that reported that pioneer aviator Charles Hamilton (1886 1914) made the first round-trip flight from Philadelphia to New York and back again flying a Curtis bi-plane:

"He flew from New York to the Philadelphia in one hour and fifty minutes. His average speed on trips to the Quaker City was 46.92 miles per hour, but returning he averaged 51.36 miles per hour."

The NEW YORK TIMES paid Hamilton $5,000.00 for this achievement.
