In the short time that I was at the track I really felt I learned a lot about the ‘Big Race’. Please excuse my tardiness in writing, but we have really been on the go getting Apollo 1 ready to fly. Also, please excuse our rapid departure after the race, but we had an appointment in Mass. and were a little concerned about being able to get up to Bunker Hill. I am enclosing some pictures that I thought you might enjoy. We should be moving our spacecraft to the Cape later in the summer for final check out- see you then. Thanks again- Ed”. 2pp. letter measures 6.25″ x 7″, with a staple at top left. one fold and light wear. Near fine condition.
