Description


TLS signed "Esther C. Goddard," one page, 6.25 x 7, One Tallawanda Drive letterhead, August 20, 1969. Letter to White House social secretary Ruth Johnston, in full: "A notice has come to me that you tried to reach me by telephone on August 11. I should explain that on July 18, on doctor's orders, I had a telephone answering service installed here at my home, since the calls had become almost continuous. Since I flew to California next day, the notice of your call did not reach me until my return on the fifteenth. Would you be good enough to accept, on behalf of President and Mrs. Nixon, and the White House staff arranging the splendid dinner honoring the astronauts in Los Angeles my warmest gratitude and admiration? It was the most prestigious and beautiful occasion I have ever attended, and I enjoyed it from beginning to end. That I should be placed next to Governor and Mrs. Reagan was a great honor. Since I understand that an old friend, Mr. Dale Grubb, is now on the White House staff, I have wondered if his fine—and kind—hand were not involved here somewhere. If so, again my gratitude." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope.
