TLS signed “Charles A. Lindbergh,” one page, 8 x 10, Long Barn letterhead, July 14, 1936. Letter to friend Martin Engstrom, in full: "I have just heard a report that you have not been as well as usual recently. I hope this is not true and that if it is, you will be all right by the time you receive my letter. I have had a letter to the effect that a number of small pines are being planted on the old farm. I remember your suggesting the advisability of planting trees in various places, when we were walking over the farm last summer. It seems to me that nothing could be done which would increase the value of the the property more as a park. I understand the possibility of replanting trees in the river valley is being considered. I have never quite gotten over the fact that these trees were cut when it was really unnecessary. We were told at the time that the water level would cover the valley, and would kill all of the trees which were left standing. The place was very much more beautiful when the valley was wooded, and I think nothing would improve it more in the future than the replanting of this valley. I am sorry we cannot fly up to see you again this summer, but we will look forward to doing so sometime in the future." In fine condition, with a thin strip of archival tape along the top edge, and a bit of old adhesive residue to the corners.
