DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER
President Eisenhower sends his thanks that he was able to participate in some of the fine cattle that was in Lewis Strauss' herd.
Typed Letter Signed: "D. E." with typed postscript signed: "D", 1p, 7x10¼. On his White House stationery, 1960 January 11. To his Secretary of Commerce, Lewis Strauss. In full: "It just occurs to me that I should transfer back to you the third interest you gave me a couple of years ago in Brockmere 10. Since you have told me that Amandale Eileenmere 492-8 is a better specimen than Brockmere, you might possibly want to dispose of the latter (and I assure you I can have no use for more than one bull). Obviously it would simplify matters very much if Brockmere should be registered exclusively in your name. It is not necessary for me to express again the very deep sense of obligation I feel to you for your courtesy in making available to me the opportunity of procuring semen from some of the fine animals in your herd. Incidentally I noted Saturday morning that you were reelected to the Boards of NBC and RCA. I am sure that membership on these Boards is an interesting experience; I hope you enjoy it. Please give my warm greetings to Alice and, of course, all the best to yourself. As ever," Typed postscript in full: "P. S.: Except for a possible trip to the farm this coming weekend, I shall be in town steadily until the twenty-seventh. Can you find some convenient time to call Tom Stephens with a view to making me a visit? For my part any time from breakfast onward would be okay." WWII hero and former Allied Supreme Commander DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER (1890-1969) was as successful in politics as he was in war. Eisenhower, who was elected the nation's 34th President (1953-1961) in 1952, was determined to bring order and efficiency to the Administration in a new era of "dynamic conservatism". His domestic program, termed "Modern Republicanism", called for greater state government power, reduced federal intervention in the economy, revamped tax laws, increased Social Security benefits and improved interstate highways. Fulfilling a campaign pledge, Eisenhower went to South Korea following his election and subsequently oversaw the truce that ended the Korean War (1950-1953). He delivered his "Atoms for Peace" proposal to the United Nations in December 1953 and led the formation of the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization the following year. Despite having suffered a serious heart attack in September 1955, Eisenhower won re-election by a landslide in 1956. Staple holes and slightly creased at upper left corner. Fold creases not through signature. Fine condition.
