Unique hand-drawn 'official order' from Stalin's daughter endorsed at the conclusion by the Russian ruler, one page, 7.25 x 8.5, 1934. One of Svetlana Stalina's playful 'official orders' to her father, Joseph Stalin, handwritten in blue and red pencil, with a decorative emblem and flourishes. In large letters at the top, she has drawn "Top Secret," with "Order #12" below. Svetlana writes: "Order you to bring oak table and six chairs." Beneath that, Joseph Stalin endorses the order in black pencil: "Immediately, J. Stalin." In fine condition. Svetlana wrote about these notes to her father in her autobiography, Twenty Letters to a Friend.
