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.
