JAMES A. FARLEY. TLS: "James A Farley", 1p, 8x10¼. New York, N.Y., 1965 October 18. On letterhead of The Coca-Cola Export Corporation to Mrs. Larue L. Yessen, Brooklyn, New York. In full: "I am in receipt of yours of September 30th, and I am late in replying to your letter because I just returned from a trip to Europe, and I am trying to catch up with the correspondence that accumulated in my absence. I am terribly sorry I will not be able to attend the annual Pearl Harbor Memorial dinner on December 7th, because I will be in Miami that week attending meetings of the Coca-Cola Company and the Coco-Cola Export Corporation. I am enclosing my check in the amount of ten dollars for a contribution inasmuch I will be unable to attend. I will be happy to serve on the Dinner Committee, and you can include my name on the letterhead and program. I am sure the dinner will be a great success. Sincerely yours". Farley had joined the Coca-Cola Export Corporation of New York upon leaving the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. He served as Chairman of the Board until his retirement in 1973. James Aloysius Farley (1888-1976) was Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (1932-1940) and Postmaster General (1933-1940) under Franklin D. Roosevelt, whose presidential campaigns he had managed in 1932 and 1936. He held both posts until disagreeing with FDR about running for a third term in 1940, leading to his resigning from both positions that year (Farley remained Chairman of the Democratic Party in New York state, a position in which he served from 1930-1944). Lightly creased with folds, not at signature. Fine condition.
