It’s unique. It’s his. There are no other ones like that.” Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket collage by Steven Dana.

    Eleftherios Venizelos Autograph Letter Signed.

    1922.

    Autograph letter signed by “the maker of modern Greece,” Eleftherios Venizelos. One page, typescript on letterhead from Legation de Greece 51 Upper Brook Street. W.1, dated 24th October, 1922 and addressed to Mr. John Hays Hammond 2301 Kalorama Road Washington D.c., the letter reads, “My dear Mr. Hammond, I still retain very pleasant memories of out meeting in California, and of your courtesy and kindness to us. Since I have left America, a great disaster has come over my country, resulting in the expulsion of a million Christians from Asia Minor and Thrace, who are now threatened with starvation and death under the very eyes of a Europe too worn-out by the convulsions of the last ten years to cast more than an apathetic glance on the appalling sufferings caused by the mistakes of its diplomatists. In the papers I have read accounts of the truly magnificent spontaneity with which the American people are coming forward with offers of help in their crisis. America has once more shown her real Christian principles in what is primarily a humanitarian cause, and, as a Greek, I cannot but express my gratitude for the spirit that has been shown. I am taking the liberty of writing to you to ask you to use your wide influence on behalf of the innocent victims of this disaster, and should I like to point out that it is not only money that is needed, but assistance in the organisation of the relief; for Greece has been so exhausted by her recent adventures that she has neither the financial nor administrative resources to cope with the overwhelming problem of accommodating a surplus population amounting to one-fifth of the number of inhabitants within her borders. Please accept the expression of my gratitude and cordial thanks for anything you may be able to do for us. Believe me to be, Very sincerely Yours, E. K. Venizelos.” The recipient, John Hays Hammond was a successful American mining engineer, diplomat, and philanthropist. A close friend of President William Howard Taft, Hays was appointed a special United States Ambassador and became chairman of the U.S. Coal Commission in 1922. A nice association.
