CHARLES L. BOLTE
Retired General Bolte responds to a letter on behalf of General Hines
Typed Letter Signed: "Charles L. Bolte", 1p, 7¼x10½. Alexandria, Virginia, 1967 December 8. To Mr. Alford. In full: "This is in response to your letter to General Hines on 6 November. Due to his advanced age, he is not able to reply in person, and I have undertaken to act for him, with his approval, whenever possible. I enclose a photograph taken when he was Chief of Staff of the Army, in 1924-1926. You will note that I was obliged to affix his autograph to the photograph, as the most feasible expedient. I also enclose a copy of the Stars and Stripes article. General Hines continues to reside at Walter Reed Army Hospital, and is quite well, considering his age." General JOHN L. HINES served as Army Chief of Staff from 1924-1926; he died in 1968 at the age of 100. During World War I, CHARLES L. BOLTE (1895-1989) was a company commander and served with the 4th Infantry Division, participating in the St. Mihiel, Meuse-Argonne and Aisne-Marne offensives. As a Major General in World War II, he commanded the 34th Infantry Division in Italy, leading it through the Gothic Line and the winter Appenines campaign and in the capture of Bologna. Lightly yellowed at upper and lower edges. Slightly creased. Light ink transfer from folding of letter, signature not affected. Otherwise, fine condition.
