    Jim Irwin Autograph Letter Signed with Apollo 15 Mission and Religious Content. One page, 8.5" x 11", High Flight Foundation letterhead, August 6, 1979, Colorado Springs. A full page handwritten letter to a correspondent who had apparently inquired about the Apollo 15 mission. It reads, in full: "You should have copy of my book 'To Rule the Night.' That would give you more vivid account of trip to moon than this letter. You see, I had good writer. Highlights of trip were earth launch, seeing earth, moon landing, discovery of 'Genesis' Rock, moon launch (8 years ago today), earth arrival! "I came back with new reverence for earth and God. I came back with love of Jesus in my Soul! "Your Friend From Beyond. Jim Irwin Apollo 15 [drawn moon symbol]" Included is Irwin's hand-addressed transmittal envelope. Very fine condition.
