TYPE: Documents (Loose)
COMPONENTS: 2p., [2] Manuscript letter, in black ink. With letterhead strip of the personal stationary of Porfirio Diaz. Signed by Diaz. With presidential seal on the second page.
CONDITION: In very good condition.
NOTES: I have seen many documents by Porfirio Diaz (not surprising considering that he was president/dictator for over 30 years), but this one is way more interesting that the rest. For starters it's about the second international American conference 1902 (proposed by the US), it´s a manuscript document, it has a strip from his personal stationary and a nice presidential seal.   This one combines the personal stationary (not present in any official document), the presidential seal, completely manuscript (official documents signed by the president in those years where almost always printed) and an interesting subject (a Pan-American Conference appointment). In conclusion, it is quite unique.
