Small, neatly done and fancy hand-written letter on 4-page note paper with engraving of Smithsonian Institution buildings at the top.  Langley, founding Smithsonian Director and aviation pioneer, writes to a Mrs. Hitt thanking her for "Cherry Bounce", no doubt a unique drink. Note is dated April 5 (no year stated).  Langley original items and signatures are very scarce and desirable.  Light wrinkles and one small chip upper right corner; otherwise very good.
