ALS signed “Ed Mitchell,” one page, 7.25 x 10.75, personal letterhead, May 18, 1970. Letter to Teddy, in part: “Our launch date is not yet firm but the expectation is that we will launch 3 Dec 1970. The experiment will be similar to those carried on Apollo 12 except for addition of an active seismic experiment and a magnetometer. I would hope that space flight would remain as exciting a challenge to the American public as it is to me, however that is doubtful. One must think of space flight as a pioneering effort and that the rewards to mankind are worth the risks incurred by a few.” In fine condition, with some light horizontal folds. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
