THE CROWELL PUBLISHING COMPANY 250 PARK AVENUE NEW YORK WOMAN'S HOME COMPANION THE AMERICAN MAGAZINE COLLIER'S, THE NATIONAL WEEKLY THE COUNTRY HOME ADVERTISING DEPARTMENT OFFICES: NEW YORK BOSTON, CHICAGO SAN FRANCISCO DETROIT PLEASE ADDRESS REPLY TO 333 NORTH MICHIGAN AVENUE CHICAGO, ILL. January 15, 1936 Colonel Edgar S. Gorrell Indianapolis, Indiana Dear Colonel: Not knowing where to find you I am writing you at your old address to extend to you my sincerest congratulations on your appointment as "Czar of Aviation". News spreads fast in this town and I have had a half a dozen or more people tell me what a fine move aviation has made in putting you in this position. For the first time in the history of aviation, in my opinion, a move has been made that will be tremendously far-reaching in aviation circles. I hope some time to grasp your hand and really congratulate you on this appointment. Sincerely yours, Henry Knippenberg HKnippenberg/mm
