Two items: a TLS signed "Thomas P. Stafford," one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, March 25, 1969, in part: "Your recent letter of March 17 inviting me to the dedication of the 1,000 man dormitory in memory of Colonel Edward H. White II, is very much appreciated. It would give me great pleasure to be able to attend this dedication, however, due to the fact that I am Command Pilot of Apollo X, scheduled for launch on May 18, my extremely busy schedule at this time and until the time of launch would not permit my attendance"; and an official color 8 x 10 NASA lithograph of Stafford in his white space suit, signed in black felt tip, "Tom Stafford." In overall fine condition, with show-through from adhesive remnants to each corner of the letter. From The Bill Lende Collection.
