Description


TLS, one page, 7.25 x 10.5, personal letterhead, January 24, 1989. Letter to Guenter Wendt concerning his retirement. In part: “Few people have had the privilege to share together the excitement of space as have we. I often recall those days when I some times felt even we weren’t sure of what we were doing! I shall never forget those last few moments in the white room—the memorable ‘gotchas,’ the last minute laughs no one could hear or the smiles no one could miss, the handshake and the ‘God’s Speed’ from Guenter, and then the closing—and locking—of the hatch. We shared a great deal together, Guenter. You are one of the giants whose shoulders we stood upon in reaching for the moon. Thank you and ‘God’s Speed’ on the rest of your journey through life.” In fine condition. The Guenter Wendt Collection, ex. Ken Havekotte. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
