Hemingway insures Finca La Vigia against natural disasters

Document in Spanish, unsigned, one page, 8.25 x 11, July 8, 1960. Insurance policy issued to Hemingway covering fire and cyclone damage. In part (translated): “Three buildings: one of masonry with concrete roofs, another of wood and tile and the other of wood and zinc, occupied by families and private garage, located in the La Finca Vigia.” Also included is the receipt for the 179.16 peso payment of the premium, dated July 15, 1960. In fine condition, with some scattered toning to both pages. Document comes from the personal property of Hemingway’s longtime friend and personal secretary Roberto Herrera. This would be the final policy issued before Hemingway’s suicide, with the Cuban government eventually taking possession of the property. RR Auction COA.
