    Jose M. Gomez Politically Important Autograph Letter Signed "Jose M. Gomez," 11.5 pages, mostly front and verso, 8.5" x 10". Steamboat "Josefina," April 30, 1908. To Sr. Modesto Morales Dias, Havana. In Spanish, fully translated, in part: "The excursion is not a propaganda campaign because this place does not need it; the ideals are already within the people. So far wherever I go I have received ovations and demonstrations of affection as I have never had before. I have carried out my demanding travel schedule. Everything has been a surprise for me, and big surprises. In Manzanillo people are crazy for politics; the residents of this town are crazy for our ideals, it's madness like rabies. What a welcome!..." General Jose Miguel Gomez took part in the Ten Years War and the successful Cuban revolution begun in 1895. In 1906, Cuban President Tomas Estrada Palma, running for reelection, defeated Gomez who then led an uprising that caused U.S. intervention. A provisional government was established in Cuba by the U.S. This letter was written in 1908 as Gomez was campaigning for President of Cuba. When the United States left Cuba on January 28, 1909, Jose Miguel Gomez was sworn in as President, serving until May 20, 1913. Paper clip stains at upper and lower left corners touch some text. Folds, horizontal fold underlines signature. Slightly foxed. Overall, fine condition. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.

    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.
