    Neil Armstrong 1969-Dated Typed Letter Signed. One page, 8" x 10.5", NASA Houston letterhead, date-stamped June 16, 1969. It reads, in full: "Dear John: Thank you very much for your recent note along with the fine drawing of Apollo 11. It always pleases me to hear from our young people - especially those with your kind of interest. Best wishes." It is signed at close: "Neil Armstrong" as Commander, Apollo XI. Uncommon. Very good condition with mailing folds, light wear, toning, and edge roughness, and a bit of ink offsetting near the signature from the date stamp caused by the original folding of the letter.

    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.
