TLS as president, one page, 8 x 10.5, White House letterhead, March 20, 1958. Letter to Secretary of Defense Neil H. McElroy, in full: "I have noted the recent agreement between the Air Force and the Navy providing for the transfer of flight operations from Anacostia Naval Air Station and Bolling Air Force Base, to a consolidated facility at Andrews Air Force Base. This action will result in substantial benefits to civil and military aviation in terms of maximum safe civil and military use of the airspace and airports in the Washington region. In addition, without at this time specifying the future use to be made of the space and facilities that will be freed by the move, it is clear that the overall effect can only be to help relieve some of the pressures on the Federal Government for needed facilities in the Nation's Capital. The Department of Defense and the Departments of Air Force and Navy in particular are to be commended for their constructive action." The reverse has been stamped twice as "Received" by the Secretary of Defense's office. In very good to fine condition, with light soiling, a few light stains, and multiple staple holes along the top edge.
