Description: 2 pages, 10.5 x 7.25 inches, Quezon City, Philippines, May 31, 1966. In this rare and important letter to a teacher, Romulo reveals his peace-keeping philosophy, in part: "My receipt of your letter brought up to consciousness a strong conviction I had always held: that man is immortal and is never wasted. This fact was pressed upon my somewhat youthful skepticism during the Second World War at the last stand of the Filipino-American soldiers...Indeed, heroism comes from the fact that even the victor belongs always to the spoils." Natural folds; near fine condition.

Comments: Philippine general, diplomat, aide to MacArthur, and president of the U.N. General Assembly.

As an Interior Decorator I am on the constant lookout for source material for my clients. I recently completed a Studio pied a terre in the Georgian period for Mr. David Brown at Lincoln Center. That is, we were almost finished with only the artwork to be designed and purchased. I have a passion for antique architectural prints and I can't believe that I didn't know about Argosy Books. After all Designers don't really like to share their finds with others. I was in a cab, looking out the window as we passed by Argosy Books and noticed a fine selection of framed prints hanging in the window. I had found my oasis! I now head first to Argosy for all my print work and framing. What a treasure and a real lifesaver for design business! Thanks eternal. - Aaron James
