Lot 87: War-dated ALS signed "Ike," two pages, 7 x 8.75, November 6, 1942. Letter to his wife, penned while in Gibraltar's Admiralty Tunnel, in full: "Jack Nygaard just dropped in & asked to be remembered to you and to ask you to say hello to Jonie Howard, Renie Clark and Mrs. Doran. This reminded me that I wanted to get a note off to you—the days go so fast I can't even keep track of them! But you know that I do try & keep you informed, by these nasty scrawls, that I'm still well & going strong. Today I'm desperately trying to get out to Gus' hqrs—but it looks as if a fog has licked me & well there's plenty to do here—but I must get to his his [sic] place soon. I haven't written John for some days—not because I don't want to—but because I'm always at the jump. I hope he understands. This is Friday—I'll try to write you a real letter on Sunday. Loads of love—always—and always remember I do love you, will you?" In fine condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, with a "Free" ink notation in the upper right.
