TLS, one page, 8.5 x 11, personal letterhead, January 23, 1989. Letter to Guenter Wendt. In part: “Well. You are finally retiring from industry, government, and other methods of living off the tax payers of the land. Congratulations! You spent so much time shoe-horning astronauts into spacecraft, leaning in to see if everything was just right, that we just knew what you were really after was to get caught inside (by accident, of course) just in time to be launched. Of course, having baby-sat so many of us on our maiden (and not so maiden) flights into space, your spirit did, in fact, rise with us above the planet, beyond the atmosphere…to the moon. None of us have or will forget you.” In fine condition. The Guenter Wendt Collection, ex. Ken Havekotte. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
