Thaddeus S.C. Lowe (August 20, 1832 - January 16, 1913), notable 19th century American aeronautics pioneer and later Chief Aeronaut of the Union Army Balloon Corps in the Civil War, authentic, autographed vintage, handwritten letter (ALS), dated January 21, 1869.  Lowe is considered the father of military aerial reconnaissance in the U.S. and was personally appointed to the position of Chief Union Aeronaut by President Abraham Lincoln.

The letter is written to business partner James T. Ames, with Lowe informing Ames on the most recent developments in the creation of an ice making and refrigeration system the men were in the process of developing. Lowe informs Ames that he is waiting only a few more parts to hopefully make their device operational.

The letter is written across two panels of a single folded sheet of paper and signed at the conclusion by Lowe in fountain pen. The signed letter is in fine condition.
