JAMES H. DOOLITTLE
James Doolittle sends a typed letter to a friend catching up on the news.
Typed Letter Signed: "Jim", 1p, 7¼x10½. Los Angeles, California, 1961 September 27. On Space Technology Laboratory, Inc. stationery. To Mr. Moss Patterson, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. In full: "Thanks for yours of the twenty-first and the clipping. Delighted to learn that you and Nell are 'getting along fine' and that you are still active. I'm off for the East this afternoon and back next Tuesday. Will visit New York, Washington, D.C., Boston and Omaha enroute [sic]. Looks like the duck hunting, except on the West Coast, will be poor this year and limits small. Joe joins me in all the best to you and Nell. As ever". 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.
