Thompson SIGNED Hand Written Autograph Letter to Friend GREAT CONTENT. 160+ word written letter! THOMPSON Hand Wrote this entire letter in BOLD Red Ink to his friend Paul Semonin. Here is the letter in full as well as a description given by Paul Semonin. Letter reads in full, Dirty Bush; Leaving Sunday – should arrive NYC that night. If you’re in the city Monday, come by or call me at Connie’s [Connie Dibble, Hunter Thompson’s then Girlfriend]. I’ll be hiding out there until I can flee in the night to Otisville later in the week. And for God’s Sake, don’t tell anyone that I’ve left Louisville. All sorts of people are after me – police, creditors, ins. Companies, etc – and from what I gather, Forbes is eager and willing to finger me for the pinch. I don’t want to go to the Tombs, so don’t mention my arrival. Especially to Floyd – who probably sees a bit of Forbes at Columbia. Come by on Monday if you can, but otherwise ignore this news of The Second Coming. An unfortunate Bull Dance was responsible for my sudden departure from here. Everything is vile and threatening – and I’m very nervous about coming back up there. The damp stench of the tombs hangs heavy in the air. So, anyway, or leastways – Cheerio: HST. As Semonin told it. In late August 1959, Thompson and his friend Gene McGarr were beaten up across the street from where Thompson’s girlfriend, Connie Dibble lived, and Thompson is clearly nervous here about returning to the city. Two Page letter (front and back) measures 8.5″ x 11″. Light toning and creasing, otherwise in near fine condition with bold writing. A scarce hand written and autographed letter by Thompson, whose typed letter are far more common. The item “Hunter S.
