ARMSTRONG, Louis - Autograph Letter Signed (Als) of 4 Pages

14 June 1970. Letter. Fine 4-page letter written entirely in the jazz legend's hand with interesting personal content on the back of four 8-1/2" x 11" photocopies of his advertisement for "Lose Weight The Satchmo Way," often used by Armstrong as stationery to his frequent correspondent, Mr. Kauffmann. Armstrong mentions being very sick in the hospital: "I was really sick this time. Everybody thought that I would die. But the Lord Jesus -- my Doctor -- and my wife Lucille were right there with me at all times-- so I came through alright." He goes on to explain, at some length, what C.O.D. means and then mentions receiving a trombone that Kauffmann had sent to him that had belonged to Mr. Franz Schuritz who had provided Armstrong with his favorite lip salve-- Ansatz-Crème. "I won't let anyone touch (put their hands on it). It is a beautiful trombone.. Mr. Schuritz' always a dear friend of mine. I offtne [sic] think of him. God Bless his soul. You are a nice man also. SIGNED "Satchmo and Lucille Armstrong. Some creases and wrinkling from mailing. Very Good Erich Kauffmann was the partner of trombonist Franz Schuritz.
