ALS signed “Duane,” two pages, 5 x 8, circa March 1970. Letter to Holly Barr, the wife of Nitty Gritty Dirt Band member Ralph Barr, in full: "Thanks for the sweet letter, I love to hear from y’all. We’re playing tonight with Santana in Atlanta, which should be pretty neat. The Atlanta folks are really nuts. I told the Duck about you folks' singing and he was interested in doing some recording with you. If you want to write to him in care of Redwal Music, 535 Cotton Ave., Macon and y’all can play ask-and-tell and work it out. Our band is going to Montreux, Switzerland to play in April. From what I’ve heard about the people there, I doubt if I’ll be coming back. Well, probably I will, really. My little one just had her half-birthday. She’s fat as a hog and laughs all the time. I love you both and hope to see you soon. We’ll probably be coming back there in June." Allman adds below: "New Address: 1125 C Bond Street, Macon, Georgia 31201." In fine condition, with light show-through on the first page from notes (likely in the recipient's hand) on the reverse. The Allman Brother opened for Santana at the Municipal Auditorium in Atlanta on March 26, 1970. The mention of Montreux is possibly also in connection with Santana, who made his debut performance at the Montreux Festival in June 1970; the Allman Brothers did not travel to the event.
