CLAIRE L. CHENNAULT
Rare, fine content war-date A.L.S. "C.L.C.", 1p. 4to., [China], Jan. 5, 1945 to his girlfriend Peggy, in part: "...It was all right about delaying the purchases...war or no war. However, she has friends in India now...who buy a few things for her from time to time. She has assisted me with entertaining Chinese officials and other foreign guests...I've been planning a package of souvenirs (banners, paintings, etc.) for shipment to you...I've been more than somewhat busy the past three months...Did you see this 'crack' recently, 'The 14th A.F. has killed more than 25,000 enemy soldiers, 5,000 horses, destroyed over 3,000 boats, sunk a million tons of shipping, and from all of these missions eight of our air bases are missing'...December was our best month of the year in terms of damage inflicted. We have an iron clad rule that requires us to hit back harder than we get hit - thus we always know who is going to get 'whipped' - sooner or later. Cheer up, Peg, and hit back hard...". Fine condition .
Estimate $ 700-900
