Description

Armstrong's letter to Lende, a former Wapakonetan

TLS, one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, December 4, 1970. Letter to Bill Lende, "Henry Willard Lende, Jr.," in part: "Thank you for your kind note after my trip to San Antonio for the Easter Seal luncheon. I was very pleased that I was able to include that very worthy event in my schedule. Of course, I know the Frames well and had dinner with Art and his wife Jane last week when I spent the Thanksgiving holiday in Wapakoneta. I appreciate your suggestions with regard to public appearances and only wish that there were enough days in the year to participate in the many other activities in which I am interested." In fine condition, with show-through from adhesive remnants to each corner. Accompanied by Lende's retained carbon copy of his letter to Armstrong, October 20, 1970, in which he mentions that he lived briefly in Armstrong's hometown, Wapakoneta, where he was a friend of the Frame family. From The Bill Lende Collection.
