We decided to take an earlier flight, so by the time you read this letter, we have already left. We'll be traveling for a couple of days, but we'll call you as soon as we get home.

Is it correct to just use "read" is that sentence or it should be changed to "by the time you are reading"?
thanks in advance for your help.
