Lot 473: Early TLS signed "Virgil I. Grissom," one page, 8 x 6.25, Project Mercury letterhead, May 27, 1961. Response to an admirer. In part: "I always enjoy hearing from young people who are interested in our space program. I am sending you some literature about Project Mercury which should be of interest to you." Mild overall foxing and trimmed edges, otherwise fine condition. Grissom became the second American to fly in space just over a month later aboard the famed Liberty Bell 7.
