He requests a listing of qualified persons to assist in making appointments at Burgos. The entire document is in Spanish. Overall in very fine condition, with some light foxing on the corners. Courtesy of Simpson Galleries, Houston. Consigned Lot. The high bid placed by via mail, fax, the Internet or telephone will be entered as the opening bid for the lot during the live portion of the silent auction.

    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.
