Partly-printed D.S., 1p large 4to., Berlin, Oct. 20, 1934 concerning the impending retirement of Generalmajor Hielscher, commanding officer of the German Army Recruiting Office in Dresden. Hitler instructs that the man is to receive pay and severance commensurate with his position, and is permitted to continue to wear his military uniform. Co-signed by WERNER VON BLOMBERG (1878-1946), Minister of Defense and Supreme Commander of the German Armies early in Hitler's regime who resigned following accusations that he had married a prostitute, also signed by WERNER VON FRITSCH (1880-1939), Commander in Chief of the German Army highly critical of Hitler's intention to go to war.
