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.

Hello. I ordered a book from you via Abebooks a short while ago; it arrived today. Since one cannot leave feedback there, I wanted to send you a note to thank you for packaging the book so carefully! I know the item wasn't very expensive, but it was a gift for my mother, who was quite thrilled to receive it. Thank you very much for taking the time to be so thorough. Best regards - E. Bell
