The first, April 13, 1972, in part: "Good luck with your flying and whatever else you choose to pursue." The second, February 16, 1973, in part: "Thank you for your recent, kind letter regarding my assignment to the Apollo/Soyuz mission. We are certainly very happy about that, as you can imagine." The third, March 3, 1975, in part: "Regarding your request for me to carry a stamp on the ASTP mission, I regret that I cannot…NASA regulations do not allow us to accept any articles from the general public to be taken on space missions." The signed photo is an official color 8 x 10 NASA lithograph of Slayton in his white ASTP space suit, signed and inscribed in black felt tip, "Best wishes to Bernard Rubin—D. K. Slayton." In overall fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelopes for two of the letters, and a sheet of 1975 Apollo-Soyuz postage stamps. From The Bill Lende Collection.
