Automobile Run to Babylon.
The New York Times
May 6, 1900
Only four members of the Automobile Club of America assembled at the Waldorf-Astoria at 9 o'clock yesterday morning to make the fifty-mile road run to Babylon and return. Albert R. Shattuck, J. Dunbar Wright, E. E. Schwarzkopf, and W. A. Carpenter were the drivers of the four motor vehicles. The recent death of David Wolfe Bishop prevented the acting Chairman of the Committee on Runs, J. Wolfe Bishop, Jr., from taking part in the run, and several other members had planned an automobile ride to the Morris Park races.
The riders did not attempt to break records and they jogged over the Merrick Road at a very ordinary pace. From Long Island City the route led to Jamaica, and thence over the Merrick Road to Babylon.
Next Saturday the members will attend the Morris Park races as the guests of the Turf and Field Club. The start will be made from Astor Court at 12:15 P. M.
