Major Donald E. Keyhoe

Dear Major Keyhoe:
by accident, while thumbing through Frank Edwards’
All, I ran
across the aurthor's (sic)
note in which
one can become a member in the
NICAP. Will you please tell
me, is the invitation still
the five dollars one invests, what does one reveive
in return? How regular are the regular bulletins, and
confidential are the confidential
letters? Now I would like
to tell you of my own little
U.F.O. experience I had.
while on vacation in Westerly, Rhode
Island, early one evening about July 20, a friend
happened to see a very bright red
light approximately 2½ mi.
offshore, not blinking, just a
steady source of red light.
At first it came straight down from approx. 1800
first sighted, to the water line, traveling at a fantastic
speed and no noise whatsoever. Then for about 3 min.
it rose and sank in the air, high point about 300
ft. and low
point at or just above sea lever
(sic – level). At first I thought it might
be an airplane or a helocopter
(sic), but then I dismissed the thought
because it possessed no sound, because of the menuvers (sic) it
and because of its speed. Then abruptly it sank
beneith (sic) the waves.
you have my own sighting of a U.F.O.
It was a
most likely, but I like to entertain the thought
of it being a U.F.O.
you give me some names of people in my area who
have sighted suspected U.F.O.'s
that I could write to?
