ALS signed “Charlie Duke, Apollo 16,” one page, 7 x 8.5, January 20, 1989. Letter to Guenter Wendt. In full: “Congratulations on your retirement. I am really sorry that I can’t be there for the big party. It doesn’t seem possible it has been almost 17 years since you strapped us in and shut the hatch. You and your crew were the greatest. I want to thank you for giving us such a great spacecraft. One of my fondest pictures is one taken in the White Room with Dotty, you and our 2 boys. They were 6 & 4 at the time. The oldest is a tanker and the young one, now 21, wants to go to Mars. I was hoping you could strap him in. You are screwing it up by retiring.” In fine condition. The Guenter Wendt Collection, ex. Ken Havekotte. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
