An Inmate Correspondence Slip, Form SBF 7, filled out and signed in Hauptmann's holograph as he was awaiting his execution.

Hauptmann also wrote his prisoner number, cell number, and prison wing, ("17400", "9", and "DH" respectively) in the appropriate blanks. Text beneath reads "One blank slip must be filled in before letter, card or telegram will be accepted". Document has slight toning and vertical fold in the center but overall very good condition. Copious handwriting by one of the most infamous criminals of the twentieth century. Included in this lot is a period booklet titled Resumé Book of the Flemington Trial by Gabriel Heath, a radio commentator who had covered the trial. This 5.5" x 8.5" 24 page publication has numerous photos of the evidence and the trial venue.
