BESS TRUMAN
Bess Truman sends a typed letter of thanks for remembering her birthday.
Typed Letter Signed: "Bess W. Truman", 1p, 5¾x7¾. Independence, Missouri, 1966 March 10. On her personal imprinted letterhead to Mr. Danny Franklin, Sunnyslope, Arizona. In full: "It was very kind of you to remember my birthday and I deeply appreciate your thoughtfulness. Sincerely" Mrs. Truman, who had been born in Independence, Missouri in 1885, had celebrated her 81st birthday on February 13, 1966. In 1919, 35-year-old Harry S Truman married 34-year-old Elizabeth "Bess" Wallace, whom he had known since the fifth grade. On her first day in the White House, First Lady Bess Truman made breakfast, made the bed, washed dishes, dusted, vacuumed and then read a detective novel, The Crimson Claw. Unlike her predecessor, Eleanor Roosevelt, she gave no press conferences and usually responded to any questions with a terse: "No comment". She tried to curb her husband's salty, blunt language. When one society matron complained that the President had used the word "manure" in public, Bess replied that it had taken her 20 years to get him to say "manure". At her death in 1982 at 97, she had lived longer than any other First Lady. Lightly creased with fold, not at signature. Fine condition.
