    Description

    Nikita Khrushchev Typed Document Signed. One page, 7" x 11.25", in Russian, Moscow, March 28, 1944. Just over one month before the Allied victory in Europe during the Second World War, Khrushchev writes to Joseph Stalin "On Comrade Vatutin's State of Health," a Soviet general who was wounded in an ambush by the Ukrainian Insurgent Army just weeks before, in part: "After yesterday's surgery there has been a certain improvement in the state of his health. . . . The general condition is satisfactory, but he is still very weak and is perspiring profusely. Even though just a little bit, still in the morning he has already eaten. . . . slept for a little while, which had not been the case for several days before it." Vatutin died two and a half weeks later. Signed in red pencil by Khrushchev. Folds. One inch tear at the left edge with minor loss of paper, but not affecting the text.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
