Aboard "Spirit of St. Louis"
Because of the limited time and the extensive itinerary of the tour of the United States now in
progress to encourage popular interest in aeronautics, it is impossible for the "Spirit of St. Louis" to
land in your city.
This message from the air, however, is sent you to express our sincere appreciation of
your interest in the tour and in the promotion and expansion of commercial aeronautics in
the United States.
We feel that we will be amply repaid for all our efforts if each and every citizen in
the United States cherishes an interest in flying and gives his earnest support to the air
mail service and the establishment of airports and similar facilities. The concerted efforts
of the citizens of the United States in this direction will result in America's taking its rightful
place within a very short time as the world leader in commercial flying.
