TLS signed “J. H. Glenn, Jr.,” one page, 7.75 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, stamp-dated November 5, 1962. Letter to Joan Rosenfeld, in full: "Thank you for your letter and I am sure you are aware that the volume of mail received has been overwhelming, which makes reading alone a formidable task to say the least. In addition, our nation's accelerated space program is placing increasing demands upon the time of all Astronauts; not only in preparation for scheduled flights, but in assisting with the design of the new generation of spacecraft which will be used in the Gemini and Apollo programs. Also, we will be involved in the training program of our second group of flight trainees. As a result, it has become impossible to respond to the many varied requests for information but I am enclosing some literature which I hope will answer your questions." In fine condition, with a small tear to left edge. From The Bill Lende Collection.
