“Since returning from Normandy,” Ike writes from headquarters, “I’ve been trying to ‘catch up’—not very successfully”
Description                           Estimate: $2,500+          

World War II–era ALS, one page, 5 x 7.25, Supreme Headquarters, Allied Expeditionary Force letterhead, no date. Letter to a friend, in part: “I’ve tried several times to ’phone to you—but always there seems to be trouble on the line. Maybe I’m just impatient. Anyway, thank you for your very nice note, it was kind of you to write it, while the language of your appreciation is far too generous! Just when the ‘party’ will start home I do not know. Early next week is my guess. I’m terribly busy, the more so that my chief helper, here, is gone. Since returning from Normandy, day before yesterday, I’ve been trying to ‘catch up’—not very successfully.” Beautifully matted with the original mailing envelope, initialed “D. E.” on the flap, to an overall size of 11.25 x 18.75. In fine condition. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
