Jean-Felix Pashoud. In full: "Dear Mrs. Saunders: Would you please be on the look-out for a letter from M. Jean-Felix Paschoud, Lausanne, Switzerland. When it arrives, please forward it airmail to me at Planorbe. No need to pick up mail oftener than you usually do, in regard to this letter. It won't matter if it takes an extra three or four days reaching me. Many thanks, C.A.L. It will be at least a week before the letter arrives". Slight smudging to the signature, usual folds, otherwise very good. Two years earlier, Paschoud had represented the Chaplin family in the bizarre case of the theft of Charlie Chaplin's body.
