TLS signed “D. K. Slayton,” one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, March 29, 1971. Letter to an admirer. In part: “I was obviously very disappointed when grounded from the Mercury flight. There are no plans at present for me to fly in Skylab, but I have not given up on the potential of getting a space flight eventually. I know of no plans to send the President into space in 1976; or, as a matter of fact, anyone else either, since we do not anticipate having manned programs running in that time frame.” In fine condition, with a trivial spot of soiling to the upper left, some show-through from a notation to the reverse, and slight haloing to the signature. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
