James Doolittle sends a typed letter of thanks to a friend.
Typed Letter Signed: "Jim", 1p, 7¼x10½. Carmel, California, 1985 April 16. On his personal imprinted Mutual of Omaha Insurance Co. stationery. To Mr. Dan Lange, St. Louis, Missouri. In full: "I want to thank you for your very kind and thoughtful letter of the tenth just forwarded from my old office. Every good wish for you and yours. Very sincerely". In 1922, Jimmy Doolittle made the first transcontinental flight in less than 24 hours. In the 1920s and 1930s, he set various speed and flight records. In World War II, Doolittle and 79 other fighter pilots ("Doolittle's Raiders") bombed Tokyo on April 18, 1942, the first air attack on the Japanese capital. Also hit were targets in Yokohama and other cities, scoring a huge victory for United States morale at a time when Japan's position in the Pacific seemed impregnable. Doolittle was promoted to Brigadier General the next day and was later awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for the raid. Fold creases not near signature. Fine condition.
