Typed Letter Signed: "John Glenn" as U.S. Senator, 1p, 8x10½. Washington, D.C., 1979 February 6. To Paul J. Friscat, North Canton, Ohio, who had asked Glenn for his favorite quotation. Glenn responds with an 83-word quote. In part: "In am happy to share with you a quote from the great poet Ralph Waldo Emerson. During my campaign I used this quotation frequently...If there is any period one would desire to be born in, is it not the age of Revolution...This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it...." Glenn represented Ohio in the Senate from 1975-1999. On October 29, 1998, 36 years after his Mercury flight, Senator Glenn returned to space aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery, spending nine days and orbiting the Earth 134 times. The 77-year-old's presence on the mission helped scientists study the effects of space on the aging process. Fine condition.
