Typed letter signed “Neil Armstrong”, January 3, 1972, University of Cincinnati letterhead, in full:
Thank you for your kind invitation to participate in your Scouting Roundtable on Physical Fitness and Survival. I have reviewed my schedule for that time period and find that it will be impossible for me to accept your request. My duties here at the university and various government responsibilities limit my outside commitments severely, making in impossible to participate in the number of events I might in other circumstances enjoy.
I am returning your first-day covers unsigned, to be consistent with my general policy. Unfortunately for the sincere collector like yourself, my past generosity in complying with these requests has been seriously abused by those using covers signed by me for commercial purposes.
Best wishes for success in your Scouting Roundtable.
Accompanied by a Letter of Authenticity from Steve Zarelli Space Authentication.
In very good condition, staple at top left, 3 punch holes in right margin.
