LINDBERGH, Charles A. (1902-1974). Typed letter signed ("Charles A. Lindbergh") to President John F. Kennedy's personal secretary, Evelyn Lincoln, Darien, Conn., 15 April 1962. 1 page, 4to. The famed aviator responds warmly to a White House invitation: "Yes, the invitation to the [Andre] Malraux dinner has come, and my wife [Anne Morrow Lindbergh] and I are accepting with sincere appreciation. I've got to have a black-tie outfit made. That's not so difficult. But now I won't be answering invitations saying that it is seven years since I have gone to a formal dinner!!" In a postscript he adds, "We are, of course, sending our acceptance directly to the Social Secretary." Because Lindbergh was at least as famous in France as the result of his epic flight of 1927, he was a logical guest at this event, a dinner honoring the French author Malraux (the French minister of culture).
