EARLE OVINGTON
Earle Ovington sends a typed letter of thanks for the meeting.
Typed Letter Signed: "Earle Ovington", 1p, 8½x11. Santa Barbara, California, 1924 May 28. On his letterhead as a "Consulting Engineer" to Curtis Freshel, New York, New York. In full: "Glad to get yours of the 19th. As always I am glad to hear from you. It certainly will be a pleasure to meet Mr. E. Alma Baker and I am indebted to you for the opportunity. As to fishing, he will find it better here than at Catalina Island. We don't talk as much as they do down ther [sic] but we have the virgin fishing grounds. My last one, on light tackle, weighed 368 pounds - yes, all one fish. He was a sea bass. I do wish you were not so far away. When you get what you are after, come to Santa Barbara to live. It's as near heaven as I ever want - or expect - to get." Handwritten postscript: "Going out this afternoon to fix my next airplane. That's the life!" Earle Ovington (1879-1936), an aeronautical engineer and early barnstorming pilot, carried the first mail (640 letters and 1,280 postcards) by air. After a journey of 5½ miles above Long Island on September 23, 1911, Ovington dropped the mailbag from a height of 500 feet. Lightly creased. Folds, light vertical fold between the "Ov" in Ovington. Chipped at lower edge, left blank corner missing, ½x½-inch paper loss at blank right edge. Overall, fine condition.
