Sale 38 Lot 1439

ALBERTO VARGASFine content A.L.S. "Alberto" 2pp. 4to., [n.p., n.d.], to Augusto, in part: "......A missive from an old pal and friend like you makes my heart grow fonder and mitigates my trauma......". Vargas adds friendly banter about his family, then jumps into the crux of the letter: "...Now, as for the important question of the 'Vargas' Book: It will go on sale on Nov. 28. I think you're so right in suggesting we use the 'Valija Diplomatica' that travels often between Peru and Washington. It would be the surest way to insure the transit of the books without being contaminated by the human 'polilla' of the sticky fingers so prevalent these days of: 'All for me, and me for myself' doctrine! As soon as I am ready I'll cable you, thus putting the whole plan into operation - ipso facto......'Bonaparte'!...". Penned on a sheet of lined notepaper, with ragged left edge from removal from a notebook, very good condition.
Estimate $ 300-400
