Thompson HANDWRITTEN LETTER Signed Original 2 Pages Very Personal. This is a personal letter that Hunter wrote his good friend (Paul Semonin) back when his first wife (Sandy Conklin) when they were (as I understand) engaged, less than two years before they married.

Thompson’s life when he was living in the beauty of Big Sur writing articles and working on his novel, “The Rum Diary”. He enjoyed hunting Wild Boar (as referenced) and Deer, etc and was in between places with a pending eviction about to happen from Mrs. Murphy’s home in Big Sur. Hand Written, which is a far more scarce letter to find than hos typed letters. Hand Signed “H” as many of his letters were. Priced fairly, but “Best Offers” will of course be considered.

Hunter Thompson 3pp. Letter With Handwritten Annotation
Epic three-page typed letter by Hunter S. Thompson, with numerous handwritten comments, edits and annotations throughout, referencing suicide (“the only logical human act”), Hitler (“a hero until he fed up”), Eisenhower, President Johnson, Ronald Reagan, Nixon, Marx, anarchists, F. Scott Fitzgerald and much more. Writing from his home at 318 Parnassus Street in San Francisco, Thompson writes to his childhood friend Paul Semonin on 15 November 1964. Letter was published in “Proud Highway”, although the handwritten portions were excluded, with some of those changing the context of Thompson’s thoughts. Like Baldwin using your phoney Marx quote and not crediting marx. As I recall, he used it to describe Fitzgerald. The idea is pure bullshit, in any case, because it makes suicide the only logical human act. Or, shooting from another angle: who decides when a’situation’ requires illusions? Who originates the demand to renounce them? And what, for that matter, is an illusion? I know you feel qualified on all these counts, but you might have trouble mounting a true consensus without the help of a loaded pistol. Thompson then goes into detail about the political climate in Bolivia, describing Bolivian labor leader Juan Lechin: He then emerged, looking and smelling somewhat like Ronald Reagan, and mingled with the mob like an oily Lyndon Johnson. After waiting with the other peasants for an hour and a half, I felt a sense of real gratitude when the prick finally deigned to speak with us. This man makes Nixon seem on par with Pope John. A true anarchist is the only man who can afford to relax in this world; his vision is clear and true, his aims are simple, and his appetites are tiny compared to the various packs of jackals who make up the opposition. His only problem is that he can’t afford to be right, so most anarchists end up lying in the name of some’necessary evil. The most important political breakthrough of the past five centuries will come when some desperate half-mad truth-seeker learns how to justify his instinct to anarchy. It has to come, because it’s the only possible reconciliation between a man’s best instincts and his worst realities. Thompson then discusses the political climate in Chile before writing, The press has turned itself to Johnson’s interests — pocketbook issues, as it were. Johnson doesn’t know Chile from chili, and doesn’t give a damn either. I think we are in for the final slide; eight years of it, unless he dies. [handwritten] And maybe even then. That’brain of your manhood” is a good line; where did you steal it? I look forward to talking to you on whatever distant day you finally realize you were put down in this muck for a very short time, and only once, and that nobody — despite the advertisements — has whipped up the dish you know you want to taste. I don’t imagine you’re far from the time when you’ll begin to get the fear that you’ll die hungry, but perhaps right now between Mr. Ford they are still teasing your taste buds, and you don’t know it yet. You are the Gatsby of the Marxist Left, old sport; he had this silk shirts and you have Tomorrow’s Gospel, and I hope we’re still able to talk like human beings when you find out that his Green Light was a hell of a lot more than a slack rich girl from Louisville. Your idea that maybe next year I’ll be wise enough to absorb the wisdom of your friends is so petulant and patronizing that I don’t see any sense in talking about it. In some small way Mailer has come back from the dead. The depth and decency of his dispair [sic] makes Baldwin sound like a crotchety fag reading somebody else’s poetry. Just for your own information, I get my irony and two-fistedness from a general shortness of cash, my apocalyptic vision from booze and desperate naivete, and my sense of tragedy from Nancy Fitzhugh [one of Thompson’s ex-girlfriends, a “doomed lover” from Louisville]. You ask me what I mean when I say all systems are against me. I mean exactly that. Any organization is necessarily a pyramid — the few controlling the many — and every system requires an organization, much as you might hate to admit itYou call yourself an’optimist,’ but everything you say is hung with the grey drapery of what strikes me as a vengeful and masochistic pessimism. My feeling is that a man is born with decent instincts (and f this idea of original sin) which are steadily pressured and perverted every day of his life until he is either driven mad or turns into a vicious insensitive monster. The trick is to keep your feet in the shitrain, and any man who can do that deserves whatever ego he has left. I agree with you entirely that the U. Is a root-rotten structure, menaced from without by justified resentment and butressed [sic] from within by moneyed fear. Your bullshit about’who is the enemy in SF’ makes me wonder, and your bloated rhetoric makes mine seem like cold hard logic. The enemy,’ the fing silly enemy, is the same right here as he is over there. The enemy is any man who is willing to take the necessary steps to protect his own [handwritten] short-term interests — now or later, often never admitting it even to himself, rarely understanding his own implications, and always a little too human for any mortal censure except in the name of fate or expediency. Hitler was a hero until he fed up. So was Kruschev [sic]. And good old Ike was such a hero, for two terms, that he was finally permitted to lay a golden egg, named Nixon, who came very near being king. Thompson then handwrites several sentences, concluding with the humorous line, do you worry about being so predictable? Three page letter on three separate sheets measures 8.5″ x 11″.

Hunter S. Thompson Typed Letter, With Handwritten Note
Thompson typed letter signed “HST” in type, with a circle around his initials and also a handwritten note, “See’Viva Zapata’ sometime”, referring to the movie starring Marlon Brando. Aerogram letter, which appeared in “Proud Highway”, is dated 3 January (1964) from Woody Creek, Colorado to Thompson’s friend Paul Semonin, with interesting content on revolutionary politics. He writes in part, Dear Young Pioneer — Sorry to be throwing my wisdom at you in bits and pieces — instead of the long bomber I planned on — but I think we are dealing with too big a thing to try to whip it up into a neat packageYou accuse me repeatedly of being’anti-Marxist. Thus, we found ourselves arguing quite often when there was really nothing to argue about. It was a tug of war, not a discussion. My position is an always has been that I distrust power and authority, together with all those who come to it by conventional means — whether it be guns, votes or outright bribery. There are two main evils in the world today: One is Poverty, and the other is Governments. And frankly I see no hope of getting rid of either. So it will have to be a matter of degrees, and that’s where we quarrelAll of my reading about Africa, plus all my experience in SA [South America], convinces me that the’civilized’ nations of this earth have created in the’under-developed’ lands nothing more or less than a cheap and ragged imitation of their own Big System that has gone by the name of’government’ since man invented the word. Now and then I get the scent of a man with enough balls to try and whip things around to a decent position. Kennedy was one; Betancourt is another; Castro was and may still be; I even go along now and then with Kruschev [sic]but that doesn’t really alter my basic feelings about power and government. It’s pretty old to say that’power corrupts,’ but I think it does and I don’t think it corrupted Kennedy any more than it has Castro. Or Mao — and certainly your man [Kwame Nkrumah] therehe looks to me like another Batista. You hit a hot nerve when you said you may have more faith in the US than I do. I think you might, and on top of that I’ll give you another irony — I think I may be much closer to being a real ding-dong’revolutionary’ than you are. I know you’ll balk at that, but I reason it this way: No’revolutionary’ has any hope as long as he’s willing to deal with the Established Order on its own terms and in its own context. The only Revolution I would bet on would be one that set out to kill the roots and break all the dies of the System that came beforeLet me give you an example. As I see it, the best hope for South America is to export every gringo on the continent and sever all ties. Who would pay the bills? Surely not the Latins, because they don’t have a dime that hasn’t been salted away in Swiss banksThey threaten, they bluff, and they finally take the payoff, in cash or some other form. Maybe the Africans are different, I can’t say. Castro has thrown off one bogeyman [sic], only to be confronted with two more. I read Sartre’s thing [the introduction to “The Damned”] and agree with itmaybe it’s just that I won’t play the Big Game until it stops looking phoney. The best I can do is keep my tools sharp and wait for the honest opening — and decide, in the meantime, if it makes sense to kill the only roots we haveTell me if you see a middleground — and, if so, where, and how. I’m more open than I’ve been in a long time. Two page letter measures approximately 7.25″ x 12″ on one aerogram sheet. Type a bit light, overall very good plus condition. The item “Hunter S.

Thompson writes to his friend Paul Semonin in Senegal, with handwritten annotations including his famous 318 Parnassus address in San Francisco. Letter references his Hell’s Angels book, reading in part,”It’s 4:00 a. Here and two of my Berkeley people just left… These guys are eager to meet you; I imagine you’d be pretty well received out here in the fall.

Hunter Thompson 5pp. Letter With Handwritten Edits
Exceptional five-page, single-spaced typed letter by Hunter S. Thompson, published in “Proud Highway” but without the handwritten edits found here. Dated 18 April (1965) from his home on Parnassus Street in San Francisco, Thompson writes to his friend Paul Semonin on a host of subjects including Vietnam, non-violent protests including the Selma March, the Free Speech movement at Berkeley, and his recent article on “outlaw motorcyclists”, which would of course evolve into “Hell’s Angels”. Punctuation is unusually spotty throughout, due to Thompson’s new “rotten fing electric typewriter”, and content here is uncorrected. Letter reads in very small part. Along these lines I;ve been watching the slow, day by day action over at BerkleyThe reason the whole ;thing came to a publicity head in the first place was a giant Establishment fup by a Chancellor named Strong, who has since resigned under pressure — not for doing what he did, but for doing it too blatantlylike the difference between Goldwater and JohnsonIf you get arrested once, for instance, a sympathetic friend or liberal benefactor might be happy to make bail. The second time, maybe — depending on what kind of publicity is involved. But then on the third try when the reporters are tired of the story & besides it has since been brought out that you have two convictions for lice-carrying, then bail is a hell of a lot harder to makelike being drafted. You think [Mario] Savio’s name popped out of a hat? On the whole, the main reason I’ve been silent for so long is that I’m going into a kind of maddog funk after too many days with the Chronicle and the Examiner. And television, and radio — and random conversations. I have gone into a kind of karate tenseness; the supercontraction of all muscles so it won’t hurt when you’re hit. One technique I haven’t mastered as yet is the puffing up of the jaws to creat an air pocket around the teeth” Thompson then writes a long paragraph on the “nausea gas story – likely the gas explosion in Quebec that occurred in March 1965, writing about media censorship of it. He mentions “Carey McWilliams, edit editor of the Nation — for whom I just did a piece on outlaw motorcyclists” which would become “The Motorcycle Gangs: Losers and Outsiders”, published in the May 1965 issue of “The Nation”. He continues, In other words,’Who can afford to give a F? This marriage thing is not a killer in itself but in the small routines and trivial obligations that come with it. Besides that, I seem to be doing everything humanly possible to finish myself with booze and general physical abuse, pills, no sleep, etc. This Vietnam thing has driven me to the point of a continuing froth. I wrote Johnson, telling him to f himself and count me out under any circumstances — and although I already have one letter on file (to the AF) saying I would never again put on a uniform, that now I wanted to reiterate this feeling and especially to withdraw my application for the governorship of American Samoa since I felt I could under no circumstances serve this administration either at home or abroad. It was a serious letter, in all, bearing down heavily on my prior Dow-Jones affiliation so they couldnt write me off as a cloistered kook, and saying all any citizen would have to say in these times to get on all the wrong lists. When I go to vote theyll probably X me out, and the next time Johnson comes to SF I expect to be interred for the duration of the visit. What I want to do in the meantime is a story of some kind on the FBI. Sandy says this is a worthless electric typewriter, an ancient and discredited model. So much for the natural integrity of my friendly typewriter merchant. This is a royal example of the shit that is driving me wild, of the horrible predatory rot that pervades the whole system. Once you become conscious of itthen all manner of once-innocent and natural-seeming things begin falling into a pattern of imperialist savagery. But nowhere like on the TV screen. There is the furthest expression of the American dream. Like the Selma march, A TV spectacular — next summer well have Harlem Riots, presented by Monsanto Chemicals. I may be sick and a bit daffy, but something in me rebels at the idea of 500 or 5000 negroes kneeling on the streets of Selman, singing #’I love State Troopers in my Heart. I think this whole non-violent thing was planned from the start by Cardinal Spellman. Dont tell me you meant Swingers instead of hipsters, because here its all the same. In a nut, it is hip to be a swinger and Camp is in. They are slow at times, but they can afford the machinery to be very thorough in the long run. I suppose your suggestion would be that I paint a big sign and join some non-violent picket line ;but no thanks again. That is for people who feel guilty and I dont. I feel like Ive leaned on for a long time by people who dont even have to know my name and should probably have their fing heads blown off on general principles. I spent this afternoon watching a Karate class in action. In the past year it has suddenly dawned on my that people are goddamn dangerous. My good time badass faround is going out of style; the general threat and pressure of life in this country seems to be spawning its inevitable results — several’secret armies’ in Calif, a tremendous upswing all over the country in crimes of pillage, robbery and violence, cops with shotguns riding every subway in NYC between 8pm and 4am — that’s the truth — and an estimated 6 or 7 thousand working karate busters in the Bay area alone. This last is a frightening thing when you consider they are a vengeful lot to begin with and that they leave each lesson with a secret yearning for somebody to say something pushy to them. I know because I went to a bar with two of them afterwards and had to keep one little guy from chopping up an old man who had no idea in hell what he was dealing withbe careful who you snarl at in tavernsNY seems to be a peatbog of slow-heating violence, physical and otherwise. If and when I go back there I definitely mean to carry a small pistol and take my chances with the Sullivan act. I think there is a terrible angst on the land, a sense that something ugly is about to happen, an hour-to-hour feeling of nervous anticipation. Whether its the Bomb or a simple beating, you never know. In closing I remain, increasingly savage and unreasonable — HST, with Thompson circling his typed initials.

1965 Hunter S. Thompson Letter With Handwritten Edits
Thompson typed letter signed “HST” in type, with Thompson circling his initials and also with his handwritten edits throughout. In this interesting letter published in “Proud Highway”, Thompson writes to “Seekoff”, his friend Paul Semonin on 9 June (1965) from San Francisco. He discusses protests on college campuses and a growing unease in the populace, with even Dr. Spock criticizing the Johnson administration on Vietnam. Letter reads in small part, I have just finished the most biased, violent and wholly political piece I’ve ever written. “The Non-Student Left”, published 27 September 1965. The big apple at the moment seems to be the Rum Diary, which I have to rewrite at least in part before any of these bastards will send me a cheque. But, sadly, it is not good enough to send out. The next few weeks will be a hell of long hours and steady work. I have to punch while they’re digging me. I have spent the past two weeks doing a piece on the Non-student at Berkeley. It took me into the world you recommended last year, the hard-nose radicals, etc. I found them sympathetic but not impressive. My piece is not as mean as it should be, however, and for a bunch of 22 and 23 year old punks they are raising a good amount of hell over there. Some of them may last. It is amateurish, but hellishly persistent and not without guts. The Legislature is now organizing a full-scale investigation of Cal, to begin next yer, and that should bring the roof down. I may have to stay out there until Xmas or so, just to cover the action. The Establishment here is incredibly disorganized and bumbling. All the pros have been hired by the other side. When I read the radical stuff I suffer for them. If the f could say what they really mean, without resorting to old cliches, they might be able to shake some people. As it is, the best thing to date on the’New American Left’ was in the Sat Eve-Post. Even the Berkeley boys agree. That is one of the basic problems. At the Berkeley’Vietnam Teach-In’ the other day I finally had to leave because too many cups had been rattled under my nose. It gives the whole thing a Losers’ smell. Even so, I think we are getting some action here. Press coverage of Santo Domingo borders on anarchy and Vietnam is nearly the same. They are smoting Johnson hip, and thigh. His hired liars are being grilled mercilessly. Mavericks are popping up in strange places. The NYTimes afor all practical purposes queered the whole administration stance in the Domincan [sic]. The consensus is falling to pieces. I think you will find a different atmosphere than the one you left here. Spock, for instance, is traveling around the country berating our Vietnam policy. Mailer, at Berkeley, told a crowd of 10,000 that Johnson is insane, and they cheered wildly. Strange pollen is in the air. NY is where most of the talk is, but the action is busting out everywhere: Michigan, Yale, Mississippi, Chicago and even L. Things are happening, for good or illHST.
