Closing of a letter signed "C.A. Lindbergh" below typed "Sincerely" and Lindbergh's initials followed by the typist's initials: "CAL:ES," on a 1½ x 3¾" piece of paper, which is affixed to a toned 4½ x 6" album page. Lindbergh's name and the date "1931" are written in another hand on the album page.

Accompanied by four items from a June 14, 1927 banquet given by The Mayor's Committee on Receptions of the City of New York at the Commodore Club in Lindbergh's honor: the program, the seating list, the invitation, and the ticket stub for the banquet, printed "Lindbergh Banquet."

Charles Lindbergh was an American aviator, military officer, author, inventor, and activist. At the age of 25 in 1927, he went from obscurity as a U.S. Air Mail pilot to instantaneous world fame by winning the Orteig Prize for making the first nonstop flight from New York City to Paris on May 20–21. Lindbergh covered the 33+1⁄2-hour, 3,600-statute-mile (5,800 km) flight alone in a purpose-built, single-engine Ryan monoplane, the Spirit of St. Louis. Though the first non-stop transatlantic flight had been completed eight years earlier, this was the first solo transatlantic flight, the first transatlantic flight between two major city hubs, and the longest transatlantic flight by almost 2,000 miles. Thus it is widely considered one of the most consequential flights in world history and a turning point for the development and advancement of aviation, ushering in a new era of transportation between parts of the globe.
