ALS signed “John H. Glenn, Jr.,” one page, 8 x 10.5, October 21, 1959. Letter to "Hank," written from "Langley AFB, Va.," written six months after his selection as one of NASA's first group of astronauts. In part: "I'm cleaning up some old correspondence, I came across you letters of Oct. '57 concerning pictures. Now to say that I'm a little late in sending pictures is the understatement of the week. Anyway, as you may have heard, I'm now one of the 7 Astronauts and love it!" In very good to fine condition, with light staining and overall rippling. After their introduction as the first astronaut class, the 'Mercury 7' reported to the Space Task Group at Langley Air Force Base for astronaut training. A fantastic letter from early in the American space program.
