TLS, one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, January 1969. Letter to Harry MacMullan, in full: "Many thanks for your preflight well wishes, for your prayers offered in my behalf, and for your congratulations extended on the successful completion of the Apollo VIII flight. As a crewman of this historic voyage around the moon, I am proud and pleased that our accomplishments will add luster to our Nation's scroll of Greats and will bring a new dimension to her aspirations and objectives. For we surely believe that we now stand upon the threshold of the most auspicious and the most brilliant era in the progress of man's endeavor to realize his age-old dream of exploring the universe in which he lives. I appreciate your thus saluting our first interplanetary mission and am most grateful for your kind and generous comments regarding my participation in this achievement." In fine condition, with three spots of toning and minor binder impressions to left edge. As Command Module Pilot of Apollo 8, Lovell became one of the first three humans to travel to the moon on a mission that lasted from December 21-27, 1968. Superb content in a letter sent within weeks of his return from man's first voyage to the moon and back. From The Bill Lende Collection.
