Juan Peron

President of Argentina (born 1895) from 1946 to 1955 and again from 1973 to his death in 1974. DS in Spanish, signed “Peron,” one page, 9 x 12.5, Ministry of War letterhead, February 17, 1945. As Vice President of Argentina, Peron writes to General Pedro Abadie Acuna, Director of Personnel, voicing his concerns regarding the issue of “successive (military) authorities have, without exception, shown indifference or neglect” to complaints concerning “promotion of Officers of the Regular Army in time of peace.” Peron implores General Abadie Acuna to re-examine the promotions, and Acuna signs the reverse of the letter, stating that he will give the issue important consideration. In very good condition, with light creasing, scattered areas of toning and light foxing, and a series of small binding holes from a ledger along the left edge. None of these conditions affect the signature, which remains clean and stands alone at the conclusion of the letter. RRAuction COA.
