TLs from Juan Perón as Argentina's Minister of War, June 28, 1945
Buenos Aires: Republica Argentina Ministerio de Guerra, 1945. 33 cm. Typed letter signed by Perón on recto, with typed response to his recommendations dated July 30, 1945 on verso; corresponding stamps to both sides. Light edgewear; vertical creasing and two rough holes to left margin. Very Good.
A bureaucratic letter from Perón referencing a case brought against an unidentified soldier dressed in civilian clothing who appeared at the home address of one Captain Dumon and either requested or was given 20 pesos for a particular but unstated purpose. The soldier failed to deliver the money to the third party for whom it was intended, and the captain filed a complaint with the military authorities; this went to the Auditor General and triggered an investigation. However, the captain failed to show up to identify the soldier in question, and because the soldier was in civilian clothing, the case was referred to civilian authorities.
It is not entirely clear to us why Perón was involved in this seemingly minor case, but it appears that he was brought in as part of the investigation, and that this letter is his department's response. He became President of Argentina a little less than a year later.
