Small archive of untranslated letters in German sent by Slatin to opthamologist Fritz Roessler, comprised of six ALSs signed “R. Slatin,” totaling 11 pages, various sizes, each dated between 1928 and 1930. One letter, in part (translated): “My late brother—20 months older than I was, was almost never sick. On the fateful day he was sitting with his grandson, a 16 year old boy, happy and painful and went into the next room to get something, when he did not return back, the boy looked and found his grandfather on the carpet lying dead with laughing expression in the face!” In overall fine condition. Accompanied by five original mailing envelopes addressed in Slatin’s hand.
