Two items: first, a TLS signed “John,” one page, 8.5 x 11, United States Senator letterhead, January 27, 1989. Letter to Guenter Wendt, in part: “I want to take this opportunity to salute you for your long and dedicated service to our nation’s space program. I remember my days at the Cape with warmth and affection for all the people who provided the expertise and common sense that made our early steps into space successful. I am proud of the people like you, whose enthusiasm, dedication and courage contributed so much to getting our space program back ‘on track’ after the tragedy of the Challenger.” He adds a handwritten postscript, “Always ‘the last arm in the spacecraft!’, Good luck, Guenter.” Second, a Launch Complex 14 metal fragment cut from the cableway affixed to an 8.5 x 11 souvenir certificate, signed on the left side in black felt tip by Wendt. In overall fine condition. The Guenter Wendt Collection, ex. Ken Havekotte. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
