Description  

TLS, one page, 7.25 x 10.5, personal letterhead, February 25, 1966. Letter to Evelyn Byrne, in part: "Of course it must be remembered that due to the early death of my father, I was forced to leave school at the seventh grade to go to work to help support a family of seven, so I had little time for reading. However, my favorite authors were Mark Twain, Horatio Alger and Tom Swift. In addition I was always interested in anything pertaining to American history and the biographical works of great leaders, all of which was a great inspiration and portrayed what are [sic] forefathers had gone through to leave us the heritage of freedom and prosperity that we enjoyed at the time. It is possible that your students would be interested in having a copy of my two books—'Fighting the Flying Circus' covering the activities of the 94th Aero Squadron during World War I, and 'Seven Came Through' giving the details of our sojourn on the broad Pacific during World War II, so I am sending these autographed to you under separate cover. I have always maintained that regardless of your age one can always learn by reading and keeping abreast of the times." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
