#358 - Anthony McAuliffe Signed Letters Estimate: $200+

United States Army general (1898-1975) who commanded the force defending Bastogne, Belgium, during the Battle of the Bulge in World War II, most famous for his brief reply to a German surrender ultimatum: 'Nuts.' Two ALSs, one signed "Tony McAuliffe" and one signed "Tony," both to Dr. Gilbert Darlington. The first, on both sides of Hotel Alonso letterhead, May 10, 1960, in part: "Already we have had much pleasure from the fine radio which you so kindly gave me. After a delightful crossing, we moved into the Reina Cristina, a splendid hotel in Algeciras. There I was able to tune in BBC from London through the Gibraltar station across the bay from us. It came in loud and clear. We have a 1960 Ford station wagon with English-speaking river who knows all the cities of Spain. We have greatly enjoyed the two days in this old and very beautiful city of Seville." The second, one page on personal letterhead, January 31, [no year], in part: "My son and I have greatly enjoyed the fine book by Jocko Clark, 'Carrier Admiral,' which you so kindly sent me. I have always had the brightest admiration for those engaged in the hazardous business of naval aviation." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope for the letter from Spain, addressed in McAuliffe's hand and signed "A. C. McAuliffe" on the flap.
