REYNOLDS, J. LOUIS
TLS. 1pp. 8 1/2" x 11". Richmond, Virginia. May 15, 1945. A typed letter signed "J. Louis Reynolds" as Vice President of the "Reynolds Metals Company". He wrote to the noted submarine inventor SIMON LAKE: "Mr. Blackwelder had to make a trip to Mexico in connection with the establishment of a plant there. Now that he has returned and the war in Europe is over, I think we should soon be in a position to start something on the salvage operation. There should be no objection now from the Navy since there is no danger of attack on the Atlantic Coast. I expect to see some officials in Washington within the next week or two and I will let you hear from me as soon as plans are made." The letter has light browning to the edges and is in fine condition; the original envelope is included.
