I am bound to the cause of the Democratic Spanish Republic and only Spain can give me orders. I live to serve her, and I am happy serving her and knowing that as long as the Republic needs me, I'll be at her service until death, now and forever." Handwritten on stationery with letterhead Comisariado General de Guerra, Ministerio de Defensa Nacional, Casa del Ejercito Popular.
