Your little corpse, brave captain,
was that it extended the metallic form immensely,
soon your fingers will come out of the snow
and the southern fisherman brings to light in a moment
your smile, your voice that vibrates in networks.

Pablo Neruda (1904 - 1973) wrote "A Song for Bolivar" to commemorate the anniversary of the death of South American revolutionary Simon Bolivar. He read the poem at the University of Mexico during the 111th anniversary of Bolivar's passing. Politicized in war-torn Europe, Neruda discovered that America could become the focus of his poems. Our verse was written during Pablo Neruda's visit to New York in 1943, when he participated in a meeting of the Pan-American organization "Voz de Las Americas".

B. On the back of the page there is a musical autograph signed by Polish-American pianist Arthur Rubinstein of the Polish national anthem, Mazurek Dąbrowskiego.

Polish Anthem, Arthur Rubinstein, Santiago, 18.2.37

Arthur Rubinstein (1887 - 1982) criticized the UN in the year of its founding, in 1945, for not including a Polish delegation in its opening ceremony. He gave voice to his criticism by playing a thunderous version of Mazurek Dąbrowskiego or "Poland is Not Yet Lost", which has been Poland's national anthem since 1926.

This engaging document, Neruda and Rubinstein together, was part of an autograph album kept by a major New York collector.
