About This Item

1970. Very Good+/Envelope: Good+. Contents Summary: Regarding the Voyageurs National Park project, Lindbergh states that he can testify in Washington on behalf of the creation of this park. But, he can not make it because of an engagement in the Philippines 15th of July, 1970. Typed Letter Signed 'Charles A. Lindbergh' in black ink. One Page 8 7/32" x 11" cut from watermarked paper 'Parchment 1471 Switzerland'. With envelope, airmail 4 5/8" x 5 3/4" with stamp/mail mark from Switzerland. Dated: Switzerland June 25, 1970. Slightly toned. Back stained from glue application, barely visible from front. Light ink or graphite ghosting. Heavy glue residue to back of envelope. Letter in full: "Switzerland June 25, 1970 Dear Congressman Taylor: I spent some days in Minnesota before leaving on this trip to Europe. My friends there told me that the Voyageurs National Park project will come up for hearings next month, and suggested that I go to Washington to testify in favor of the park. I would be glad to do this if it were not for the fact that I have engagements [sic] in the Philippines starting the 15th of July, and must depart from the United States several days in advance. Since I cannot be in Washington at the time of the Committee meetings, I write this letter to say what an attractive and exceptional National Park I think the area under consideration would make. Certainly, if present plans are carried out, it would be one of the greatest National Parks of the world. I have no hesitation in saying this because I cruised along the shores and flew back and forth over the area under consideration last year, and I have now, in connection with aviation and conservation activities, seen many national parks and prospective national parks for comparison. We will need more and more national parks in the United States as years pass. With the opportunity of obtaining an area as fine and as beautiful as the Voyageurs Park would make, it seems to me it would be a tragedy not to take advantage of it. Sincerely, Charles A. Lindbergh Hon. Roy Taylor Chairman Subcommittee on National Parks and Recreation House of Representatives Washington, D.C."
