FOREWORD


At 6.52 on the morning of Friday, May 20, 1927,
Captain Charles A. Lindbergh, 25-year-old officer of
the Missouri National Guard and airmail pilot, who
ten days previously had set a new long-distance record
by crossing the continent alone in his specially con-
structed single-engine Ryan monoplane, "The Spirit
of St. Louis," took off from Roosevelt Field to at-
tempt the flight from New York to Paris. He flew
alone and without wireless.
The tragic disappearance of Captains Nungesser
and Coli of France, whose heroic but ill-fated en-
deavor to fly from Paris to New York had aroused
universal admiration and sorrow, was still fresh in
the minds of men, and Captain Lindbergh's effort
was watched with mingled feelings of deep anxiety
and tense interest.
Frequent news of his progress northward and east-
ward along the Atlantic coast increased the excite-
ment of his millions of well-wishers, and at 6.15 on
Friday evening he was reported over St. John's,
Newfoundland, headed for the ocean in the direction
of Ireland. That was the last bit of information
concerning him for almost twelve hours, when word
was received on Saturday morning that he had been
sighted by a steamer some 500 miles off the Irish
coast. From then on the reports became more fre-
quent, and as he drew nearer his goal he was picked
up and escorted by British and then French planes.
Ten hours later, at 10.21 p. m., Paris time, he made
a perfect landing on the flying field at Le Bourget,
outside Paris, where a huge and enthusiastic throng
had gathered to welcome him. He had covered the
3,600 miles between New York and Paris in 33V2
hours at an average speed of 107.% miles per hour.
49988-27 (1)


I II I








During the days which followed in Paris, where he
was the guest of the American Embassy, he was
received by the French Government and people with
an enthusiasm and cordiality which has seldom been
paralleled. For the first time in history the President
of the French Republic personally decorated an
American citizen with the Cross of the Legion of
Honor.
On May 28 he flew to Brussels, where a similar
welcome awaited him and where King Albert be-
stowed upon him the order of Chevalier of the Royal
Order of Leopold.
Proceeding to England in his plane, he was greeted
by immense crowds at Croydon and was received by
King George, who presented him with the Royal Air
Force Cross.
After returning to Paris once more to say farewell to
the country where he had first landed from his flight,
he left from Cherbourg on the U. S. S. Memphis,
which had been placed at his disposal by the American
Government, and upon his arrival in Washington he
was officially received by President Coolidge, who
decorated him with the Distinguished Flying Cross.
Some small conception of the extent to which
Captain Lindbergh's astonishing achievement and his
remarkable poise in the moment of triumph touched
the imagination of all peoples may be gathered from
the following official messages selected from the
records of the Department of State. In reading this
brief and necessarily incomplete compilation, future
generations may themselves sense something of the
thrill which swept through the hearts of men and
women when the word was flashed "Lindbergh
landed at Le Bourget at 10.21, Paris time."

THE WHITE HOUSE,

His Excellency
President Gaston Doumergue,
Paris.
I desire to extend to you and to the people of
France this expression of my deep personal sympathy,
which I assure you is shared by all Americans, in this
time of anxiety over the fate of the two French
aviators, Nungesser and Coli. Their splendid cour-
age has touched the imagination of America and
there is everywhere the most earnest hope that they
may still be found. I assure you that this Govern-
ment is doing everything humanly possible to assist
in the search, and I pray that this search may issue
in success.

His Excellency
Mr. Calvin Coolidge,
President of the Republic of the United States
of America, Washington.
I hasten to thank you, in my own name and in the
name of the French people for the deep sympathy
you so kindly take in the anxiety now gripping our
hearts about the fate of the two aviators Nungesser

and Coli. The French people are deeply touched
by the marks of admiration evinced in these cir-
cumstances by the people of the United States and
the generous assistance so kindly lent by the Ameri-
can Government to the endeavor now being made
to find the missing aviators. In this trying moment,
as in all those she has undergone, France once more
experiences the active sympathy of your great
country.

FOR THE PRESIDENT. All France is deep in joy
at Charles Lindbergh's brave flight. Your message
was such a worthy tribute. If we had deliberately
sought a type to represent the youth, the intrepid
adventure of America, and the immortal bravery of
Nungesser and Coli, we could not have fared as well
as in this boy of divine genius and simple courage.

His Excellency,
Mr. Calvin Coolidge,
President of the United States of America,
Washington.
On the morrow of the attempt of our aviators,
whose misfortune was so keenly felt by the kindly
hearts of your countrymen, Charles Lindbergh made
true the dream of Nungesser and Coli, and by his
audacious flight brought about the aerial union of
the United States and France.
All Frenchmen unreservedly admire his courage
and rejoice in his success. I congratulate you most
heartily in the name of the Government of the
Republic and of the whole country.
GASTON DOUMERGUE


THE WHITE HOUSE,
Washington, May 21, 1927.
His Excellency,
Mr. Gaston Doumergue,
President of the French Republic,
Paris.
I thank you for your cordial message, which I share
with the American people. I rejoice in the success
of the young man who so courageously set forth on
his lonely flight, but neither I nor the people of the
United States forget to share in the sorrow of France
in the recent loss of your two brave aviators. It is
largely due to the genius of France that aviation has
progressed so rapidly, and as it brings us closer as
measured by hours so it must increase our heritage
of sympathy and understanding.

AMERICAN EMBASSY,
Paris, May 28, 1927.
Secretary of State,
Washington.
Lindbergh has been accorded by all French official-
dom and people a reception surpassing any I have
ever witnessed on crowned heads or visiting poten-
tates. This stirring acclaim has been accompanied
by a tremendous revival of good will towards us.
An expression of appreciation by the President
and by you would be greatly appreciated and would
consolidate the good that has been effected-espe-
cially since Lindbergh, although he came unofficially,
yet by force of circumstances and achievement has
become a real ambassador to France. Moreover, he
undoubtedly will continue to be a messenger of good
will to the other countries of Europe that he may
visit.
Lindbergh has just departed. Throughout the
week in Paris not one untoward thing has happened.
He has captured everyone by his courage, modesty,
and inherited good sense.
I should appreciate this message being transmitted
to the President.

DEPARTMENT OF STATE,
Washington, May 28, 1927.
American Embassy,
Paris.
Your telegram has been transmitted to the Presi-
dent, who directs me to instruct you to deliver the
following message to President Doumergue in person
on May 30 (Memorial Day):


-









The magnificent reception accorded to Lindbergh by the
Government and people of France has gone straight to the
hearts of the American people. It is a stirring proof that
the unity of purpose forged upon the field of battle by our
forefathers and by the men of our time remains steadfast
and strong, a consecration of the past and a dedication to
the future.
You will please also convey to the Minister for
Foreign Affairs my personal sense of gratification at
the spontaneous and sincere manifestation of friend-
ship so generously shown by the French nation. In
honoring Lindbergh, France has done honor to her
noblest traditions, and the people of America have
been deeply moved indeed.

In the glorious combats for Liberty of to-day, in
the moving struggles for human progress, the union
between the United States and France remains
unalterable and inspiring.
