JAMES H. DOOLITTLE
James Doolittle sends a typed letter agreeing to an engagement and finalizing the plans.
Typed Letter Signed: "J. H. Doolittle", 1p, 7¼x10½. On his personal imprinted Mutual of Omaha Insurance Co. stationery. Los Angeles, California, 1976 November 17. To Mr. Barnee Breeskin, Circus Saints & Sinners Club of America, Washington, D.C. In full: "Have your letter of the third with attachments. I will be in Jim Barrett's hands and, as suggested in your letter, will arrive at the Shoreham Americana Hotel at 12:00 noon. Do want to thank you and your associates for selecting me as your "Fall Guy". Appreciate the honor greatly, although I well realize that my good friend Joe Foss's mayhem may be considerable. I look forward, with pleasant anticipation, to seeing you on the ninth of December. Every good wish. 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 through last name. Fine condition.
