TLS, one page, 7.25 x 10.5, personal letterhead, April 14, 1970. Glenn sends words of encouragement to a young admirer while recounting his historic flight. In part: “I can assure you it has been most interesting for those of us involved more directly. The flight of Friendship 7 was an opportunity not only to represent our country but to make some solid scientific contributions to our knowledge in the new and exciting field of space. On a more personal basis, I guess it was an opportunity to use what ever talents and capabilities I might possess to their fullest, and that's an exciting challenge to any person. If each of us could just see every day as that type challenge in the usual things we do, and approach each new area of learning or experience with that same attitude, I am sure we would all advance much more rapidly than we do.” In very good condition, with mild wrinkling, scattered creasing, a tiny hole at the lower left corner, and a rectangular area of light toning at the top of the page. Remarkable content as the great American hero encourages the next generation. Pre-certified Scott Cornish and RR Auction COA.
