    Description

    Charles Lindbergh Autograph Letter Signed "Charles A. Lindbergh." Three pages, verso only, 8" x 10.5", n. p., November 22, 1927, to Richard "Dick" Blythe and Harry Bruno. It reads in full:

    "Now that my affairs have quieted down somewhat, and I have a little more time to devote to writing. I want to thank you both, once again, for the assistance you gave me both in the preparation of my flight to Paris and after my return to New York.

    "The efficient manner in which you handled things during this period is something which I deeply appreciate.

    "I have watched with interest your publicity work in relation to the aeronautical industry. Conservative, straight forward, publicity will aid greatly in its progress in addition to acquainting the public with actual facts relative to aeronautics."

    In November of 1927, America's golden boy, Charles Lindbergh, was between tours. Having recently returned home from the whirlwind, three month Guggenheim tour of America, where he would visit forty-eight states and ninety-two cities, Lindbergh was enjoying a seemingly rare quiet moment. In one month's time, he would set off again, this time for a six week tour of fourteen Central American and Caribbean nations, where he would meet his future wife, Anne, the daughter of the United States Ambassador to Mexico. Richard "Dick" Blythe and Harry Bruno ran the public relations firm, Bruno and Blythe, which represented Lindbergh during his transatlantic journey and were organizers of the male aviator club, The Quiet Birdmen.

    Each page is mounted to a backing board to an overall size of 8.5" x 11.25" (each size varying slightly). Smoothed folds with toning along the edges. Fine. From the Richard Blythe Aviation Collection.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
