One photo postcard from author Ernest Hemingway in Peru to United States ambassador to Peru, Ellis O. Briggs. Hemingway relays details of how the ambassador will reach him at sea when he arrives at the Cabo Blanco Fishing Club. The black and white postcard depicts Hemingway at the club with a large Marlin he had caught. Also includes one Christmas card, presumably to ambassador Briggs, from the Cabo Blanco Fishing Club. The card includes a photograph of the marlin depicted in the film version of 'Old Man and the Sea" which was filmed at the club.

These items had been laid in to ambassador Briggs personal copy of the "The old man and the sea" Rauner Rare PS 3515.E37 O52 1952 c.4
