To Juan T. Trippe

March 16, 1940 [Washington, D.C.]

My dear Trippe:

I returned yesterday from my trip out to Hawaii, and I want to thank you very sincerely for the courtesies extended me by the Pan American system on the flight from San Francisco to Honolulu and return. I was tremendously impressed by the efficiency of your service, and by the comfort and luxury of the trip, as well as the speed. I found the ocean traveling more restful than transcontinental air trips, and certainly from my observation of every procedure, one is much safer in the air in a China Clipper than in crossing the street here in Washington.

My sincere thanks for your courtesy.

Faithfully yours,
