TLS signed “Walter M. Schirra, Jr.,” one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, December 7, 1962. Letter to Marshall E. Bean, in part: "I was glad to know of your interest in our space efforts. It has occurred to me that you might wish to have copies of illustrated booklets on the flights of Astronauts Glenn and Carpenter. We do not yet have a book ready for distribution on the Sigma 7 flight…My family joins me in wishing for you good cheer and happiness at Christmas which will remain with you the whole year through." In fine condition. Schirra had performed the "Sigma 7 flight," Mercury-Atlas 8, only two months earlier on October 3rd. From The Bill Lende Collection.
