Description


ALS signed “Gus,” one page, 8 x 10.5, no date but likely circa January 1963. Letter to Guenter Wendt. In full: “Sorry to be so long about getting this to you. My only regret is that I’m not more fluent and able to make it even more complimentary. You are a wonderful person and deserve better than my feeble efforts. Hope to be seeing you on the pad again soon.” In fine condition. Wendt had solicited letters of recommendation from some of the Mercury astronauts, which Grissom seems to be referencing here. Autograph letters signed by Grissom are extremely rare, and this is said to be the only one written to Wendt. Thoughtful content from the clearly appreciative astronaut. The Guenter Wendt Collection, ex. Ken Havekotte. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
