Description: 2 pages (front and back) on "Fairmont Hotel" stationery, 6.75 x 5.5 inches, San Francisco, February 16, 1986. In this letter, Hunt sends good wishes to a friend, in part: "...Linda is forcing me to write this B & B note expressing as pleasure and satisfactory for your straitened hospitality. Rallius told me just now that I should have D. M. O. D. which I will next time - (Let me know if drinks are free at the Grove rally). Somewhat more seriously, we terribly enjoyed being with you, Martha & Whitney, and are charmed by your good words concerning 'BP'. A bientot." Hunt's name has been written on the top left corner of the first page, presumably by a previous collector; otherwise fine condition.

Comments: Career intelligence officer who served almost two decades as a CIA operative, culminating with his participation in the ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion. He was one of the engineers of the first Watergate burglary and other undercover operations on behalf of the Richard Nixon White House in 1971 -- crimes which led to his conviction on the charges of burglary, conspiracy, and wiretapping. Hunt served 33 months in a federal prison.

I'm writing to let you know that the book arrived safely yesterday. I also wanted to thank you for your very professional and awesome packaging job. It's so nice to know that some people do care when packaging vintage and antique books for their customers (I say this because I've had some bad experiences recently with some other book dealers who did a miserable job of packaging a book from 1824). Best, -V.W.
