A rare T.L.S. carried by Lindbergh during his flight to St. Louis, Jan. 20, 1928, with the original envelope bearing his cancellation stamp, written by Wallace O. Lee in Indianapolis on letterhead of the Indianapolis Power & Light Co. on Feb. 15, 1928 to his son Wallace O. Lee, Jr. in Indianapolis. In part: "...So that you may have a letter from your dad that you can treasure in later life, and the inspiration that goes with having this letter carried across the country in the plane of a young man who I would like to have you take as an example for your future guidance, I am sending you this letter by airmail, and the young man to whom I referred to above...is none other than Colonal [sic] Charles A. Lindbergh, who possesses the necessary requisites for success, namely, honor, courage, humility and a thorough respect for God, the laws of his country and the right of his fellowman. May you, my son, possess all of these virtues and be able to accomplish in your life all that you desire...". Mysteriously, the letter is lightly burned around the edges. Matted with the original envelope and framed in a dark wood frame. A perfect item for display.
