Abstract
We present here thirteen previously unpublished letters from the Hubert Jennings Papers, including twelve letters signed by members of Fernando Pessoa’s extended family, plus one letter drafted by Hubert Jennings himself. This correspondence covers a period of time of almost three years, dating from 10 February 1967 to 15 January 1970. Chronologically situated in between the two previously known letters sent from Michael and Teca (published in Pessoa Plural 8), these new documents greatly enrich our understanding of the relationship between Hubert and Pessoa's family, their joined efforts to secure a grant from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, and the early inventory of Pessoa’s archive.
Apresentam-se aqui trezes cartas inéditas do arquivo de Hubert Jennings, incluindo doze cartas assinadas por membros da família de Fernando Pessoa, além de um rascunho de carta do próprio Hubert Jennings. Essa correspondência cobre um período de quase três anos, de 10 de Fevereiro de 1967 a 15 de Janeiro de 1970. Cronologicamente situadas entre as duas cartas conhecidas de Michael e Teca (publicadas em Pessoa Plural 8), estes novos documentos muito enriquecem o nosso entendimento da relação entre Hubert e a família de Pessoa, dos seus esforços conjuntos para assegurar uma bolsa de estudos da Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian e do primeiro inventário do arquivo pessoano.
