    Accompanying the book is a one page Richard R. Blythe TLS, 8.5" x 11", on H.A. Bruno-R.R. Blythe and Associates letterhead, New York, October 24, 1927, addressed to P.W. Remig Jr. inviting him, "at the request of Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh," to "an informal dinner . . . to express his personal appreciation to you, for splendid cooperation prior to his take-off for Paris." With a partial newsletter page regarding the dinner, dated November 2, 1927, reading, in part: "Mr. Umlauf... and Mr. Remig of the Manufacturer's Service Division, of our company, were among the invited guests, as both of these men were very active in assisting the Colonel following his arrival in New York . . . As a souvenir of the occasion, each guest received an autographed copy of Colonel Lindbergh's famous book 'We.'" Also included are three photographs of Lindbergh, two of which feature him with his plane, Spirit of St. Louis, and a 4.25" x 6.5" program for the above mentioned dinner.

    In 1927, P.W. Remig was an employee of the Vacuum Oil Company, a pioneer in oil manufacturing and the manufacturer of Mobil oil, which Lindbergh used on his transatlantic flight. Vacuum Oil merged with Standard Oil Company in 1931 and is today known as Exxon Mobil.
