Castro sees to post-revolutionary agricultural development

DS, in Spanish, one page both sides, 8.25 x 11, September 16, 1965. Memorandum to which Castro adds his signed endorsement quoting the quantities of seeds for strawberries, grapes, alfalfa, and asparagus. The memorandum (signed two days later, on September 18) reads in part (translated): “Durgos: I think you should purchase and to sow at least fifty pounds of each one of the varieties of hybrid asparagus UC-309 and UC 76 because five pounds is not enough. I will speak with Celia to solve with the bank about money. Take them from the livestock funds. Resolve this soon, because the time runs. The alfalfa seeds for example, remember that some sowings need to be done in November. I agree with the proposed about the other crops.” In very good condition, with intersecting folds, one through a small portion of signature along with a few creases, some scattered light toning and foxing, a few edge dings, and mild handling wear. Auction LOA John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and R&R COA.
