About this Item

This U.S. Army general led the American Division in the Pacific during World War Two and later served as Korean War commander. ALS, 1p, 7¼" X 10½", Fort Bragg, NC, 1949 November 2. Addressed to Mary B. Day. Near fine. Staple holes at upper left, not affecting text. Chatty personal note on letterhead of Headquarters V Corps. "Lydia will join me here soon and we will settle to normal living again. Mother is much better now." With original envelope, addressed in Hodge's hand and also signed. Uncommon. Accompanied by a superb original 1949 black-and-white glossy news agency photograph (International News Photo), 8½" X 6½". Original newsprint mimeographed text sheet still present and tipped to verso (as issued). Titled "Says Reds Arm Koreans and Flout Pact," this text begins: "Called back to the United States for an over-all review of the Korean situation, Lt. General John R. Hodge, U.S. Commander in Korea, is shown (right) with Secretary of War Robert Patterson as he went to report to President Truman." This exceptional image is pristine and itself scarce. A choice personal letter and choice original photograph -- a quite uncommon pair. Bookseller Inventory # 27405
