Sketch map drawn by Louis Blériot to illustrate his flight. Comments translated below:-

Cliffs  Winds 10 minutes out of sight of land!  Calm Calais
Arrive at 05:12
Dover
The westerly wind prevents me from climbing over the cliff I sight the 
English coast 
Pass the torpedo 
destroyer L'Escopette
La Baraques
Depart at 04:35
