TLS signed “Alan,” one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, March 7, 1973. Letter to Harold Collins of the Mission Support Office in the Kennedy Space Center, in full: "It doesn't seem like very long ago that Pete Conrad, Dick Gordon, and I were working with you closely prior to our flight of Apollo 12. Believe me, you made the preparation a much happier event by handling the myriad details and day-to-day decisions that has to be made at that time. To go to the moon takes many thousands of people who are dedicated and who will sacrifice their own personal happiness for the overall success of missions. I personally feel that you contributed more than anyone could ask to be contributed by another yet you did it freely and with enthusiasm. I know that those of us who worked with you landing men on the moon will never forget you for the rest of our lives. We were all fortunate to be part of the Apollo program. I know that your future will be filled with further successes." In fine condition, with several sets of staple holes and two adhesive remnants to reverse of top edge. From The Bill Lende Collection.
