The letters don't seem like it belongs in the paper. The paper looks old but the letters are so clean and undisturbed especially those title which seems to pop out from the background. Looks like it is made up. This is my opinion.

Was there any hearing done by congress regarding this matter? If there was an investigation done by congress about his matter, I expect it to be behind closed doors and hence the report will not be known by the media.

Wasn't that letter about the infamous "swamp gas" sightings in Michigan
In 1966 Michigan experienced hundreds of UFO sighting. The reports of weird dancing light produced quite a furor. To handle the demands for an explanation the Air Force held a quickly arranged news conference where J. Allen Hynek, an astronomy advisor to Project Blue book, made a statement he would regret the rest of his life. He declared that a sighting made by Frank Mannor on March 16, 1966, in Dexter, Michigan was probably "swamp gas."
The comment made Hynek an instant celebrity. It did not, however, calm the calls for answers to the mystery, or for Hynek’s head. In fact, it made the calls for an investigation louder. One of those who came to the help of the public in their demands for answers from the government was House Republican leader Gerald Ford, who would later become President.
Dexter, the town involved in the sighting declared to be "swamp gas" by Hynek, happened to be in Gerald Ford’s district. Like any good Congressman Ford came to the defense of his constituents.
