JOHN J. PERSHING
General tells Senator he cannot attend bridge opening.
TLS: "John J. Pershing", 1p, 7¼x10½. Washington, 1928 October 15. To Senator Simeon D. Fess, Cambridge, Ohio. In full: "Thank you very much or your telegram urging my acceptance of the invitation extended me to be present at the opening of St. Mary's Bridge. I deeply appreciate your interest and wish that I might send you a favorable reply, but the fact is my plans for the next few weeks make it quite impracticable. Again thanking you, and with cordial good wishes and kindest regards always." SIMEON D. FESS (1861-1936) represented Ohio in the U.S. Senate as a Republican from 1923-1935. This letter was written three weeks before Fess was reelected. JOHN J. PERSHING (1860-1948) commanded the American Expeditionary Forces during WWI. After the war, he was promoted permanent General of the Armies of the United States. Pershing received the 1932 Pulitzer Prize in History for My Experiences in the World War. Lightly creased and rippled. Shaded at margins. Chipped at blank upper edge. Overall, fine condition.
