Eisenhowers letter continues to say that he has a gift for the British Chief of Staff. Its purpose is merely to remind you that the man means well, even though hes too often a so and so and a this and that. The closing line is a rare self-deprecating jab at himself, or perhaps a reminder of harsh words once exchanged between he and some British military leaders, perhaps even Fraser and himself.
It is worth further research into the relations between Eisenhower and the key British Admiral. During his command in the North Atlantic coast protecting supply lines (the assignment mentioned in this letter), his ships sank the last German Battleship in the North Atlantic. He later commanded the British Pacific Fleet and on behalf of Great Britain signed the Instrument of Surrender of the Empire of Japan.
An excellent war content letter in rare holograph with an even more rare form of his signature Ike E. Overall in excellent condition with two vertical folds & minor surface impressions.
