Flown On Lindbergh's Last Flight On Spirit Of St Louis For Sale
The SAME LETTERS as in the SMITHSONIAN COLLECTION and shown on WIKIPEDIA
After making his historic nonstop flight to Paris Charles Lindbergh used the immense fame that his exploits had brought him to help promote the use of the Air Mail service. Lindbergh did this by giving many speeches on its behalf, and by carrying souvenir mail on both special promotional domestic flights as well as on a number of international flights over routes in Latin America and the Caribbean which he had laid out as a consultant to Pan American Airways to be then flown under contract to the Post Office Department. At the request of Capt. Basil L. Rowe, the owner and Chief Pilot of West Indian Aerial Express and a fellow Air Mail pioneer and advocate, in February 1928, Lindbergh carried a small amount of special souvenir mail between Santo Domingo, R.D., Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and Havana, Cuba in the Spirit of St. Louis.
