Ernest Hemingway check signed, dated 12 November 1949 from the Cuban branch of the First National Bank of Boston. Hemingway signs his full name, ''Ernest M Hemingway'' and writes the check in Spanish to ''Portador'' (Pay to Bearer) for thirty dollars. Interestingly, he switches pens, writing the payee, amount and date in black ink and then changes to blue for ''Hemingway'' underlining his last name with it. Check is endorsed on verso by Roberto Herrera, Hemingway's friend and manager of his ''Finca Il Vigia'' property in Cuba, which is now a museum. Measures 6.5'' x 2.75''. Very good condition with cancellation stamps affecting ''Ernest''.
