    George Bernard Shaw Autograph Letter Signed Regarding the 1930 London Naval Conference. One page on a personalized notecard, 3.5" x 4" (sight), March 17, 1930. Writing to Frederick Wile, Jr., Shaw predicts the final outcome of the London Naval Conference, which would end the following month: "I think I had better hold my tongue about the Conference. It is now clear that it will end in a three Power Pact (England, U.S., & Japan); and I see no good in spreading that fact more emphatically than the papers will." The Conference resulted in the Washington Naval Treaty and changed the ratio in battleship tonnage between the three countries. Although also in attendance, France and Italy excluded themselves from the agreement. Matted beneath a black and white photo of Shaw to an overall size of 10" x 17".

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
