MERVIN F. ROBERTS. Autograph Letter signed: "Merv", 1p, 8½x11. No place, 1999 July 3. To "Dear Ev and Herb", in full: "Edith and I are well and about to embark on a world trip with a stop in Northern Thailand to see a granddaughter ride a two-wheeled bike and then to Kerala India to be the heavy for a Catholic Bishop whose own laymen are scheming to milk American charity money - for a change. This is a subsistence farming women's project - tilapia with duck eggs on the side. In April I did a one week salmon farm feasibility study for David Rockefeller as I approached the age of 99. Jimmy Atz & I had a chat the other day and reminded each other that Herb had a birthday on June 7. We also reminded each other that you treated both of us kindly and we are grateful, even 50 years later. We also reminded each other how much we admired Ev. I tried to reach you by telephone for Herb's birthday but never got through. Best wishes to you both." Written on verso of a typed letter with printed signature of David Rockefeller, dated 1999 May 4, thanking Roberts for his expert advice on an application for an Atlantic salmon lease site. MERVIN F.
