Note from pilot Max Miller to Benjamin Lipsner
Airmail pilot Max Miller wrote this note to Benjamin Lipsner, Superintendent of Airmail Service, on November 29, 1918. In his note, Miller references an American flag that Lipsner had given him to commemorate some of the Post Office Department’s airmail flights. The note says, “Here is hoping this little flag will never be worn out making new trips. It’s charm is undoubtfull [sic]. ”
Miller carried the flag in his airplane during five flights; his note about those flights is also in the National Postal Museum's collection (museum id 1982.0157.711).
