Richard J. Barrett to Kimberly Barrett
23 July 1969
Although you are quite small at this time, perhaps in a few years when you read about it in the History books, you'll look at this and know that on the same day the astronaughts came back to earth that I was far away and missed you and loved you.
I hope that this will be valuable to you and give you a sense of History and a sense of pride in this great country of ours.
I love you,
