WOMAN TO FLY WITH MAIL

Miss Quimby Plans A Trip from Boston to New York.

BOSTON, June 20. – Arrangements have been made for an aeroplane flight by Miss Harriet Quimby from the Harvard aviation field, at Squanum, to New York, with United States Mail, on the last day of the third annual Boston aviation meet, which opens on June 29.

The flight will be made by authority of the Postmaster General Hitchcock, who has granted Manager Willard permission for such a trip.

Letters or postcards deposited at the sub-station will be officially stamped and will be given to Miss Quimby to deliver. Miss Quimby will use her 75- horse power monoplane, and will endeavor to cover the distance of 235 miles without a stop. She will make a landing just outside New York City, where she will be met by a mail carrier, to whom she will turn over her pouch of letters.
