(1894 - 1987) Nazi German Deputy Fuehrer and second in command after Goering, Hess was one of Hitler's closest confidantes and friends. In an unauthorized peace mission, Hess flew a German fighter to England and surrendered, purportedly attempting to ally Germany with Great Britain against Russia. His mission, of course, failed and Hess was imprisoned at Spandau where he was found hanged in 1987. Rare A.L.S. on his personal black-bordered mourning letterhead, 1p. 4to., Munich, Jan. 9, 1938. Hess pens a letter of condolence to a "Fraulein Thea" and her sister upon the passing of their father, and recalling his fond memories of their earlier days together. Folds and a few tiny spots, else very good. Hess is very rare in holograph letters.
