Harry Truman sends a typed letter of thanks for sending back an application.
Typed Letter Signed: "Harry Truman" as President, 1p, 7x9. The White House, Washington, 1947 May 12. To James Daleo, Kansas City, Missouri. In full: "I am happy that you sent back to me the application to The Supreme Court of Missouri because I have decided to postpone that program until a little later on. I'll be in Kansas City for the 35th Division Reunion and I'll discuss it with you. Sincerely yours," In 1917, Truman helped organize the 129th Field Artillery, 35th Division. In 1918, Truman served with his regiment in France, fighting in the second phase of the Meuse-Argonne offensive. Harry S. Truman (1884-1972) served as 33rd U.S. President from 1945-1953. The former U.S. Senator from Missouri (1935-1945), who had been elected FDR's Vice President in 1944, assumed the presidency upon FDR's death on April 12, 1945. Faced with the ordeal of ending WWII (1939-1945), Truman ordered the atomic bombings on Hiroshima (August 6) and Nagasaki (August 9). He fought the Cold War with the Truman Doctrine, a policy reducing Communist pressures on Greece and Turkey through economic and military aid. During his second term, Truman sent U.S. forces to South Korea to repel invading North Korean troops. After leaving the presidency, Truman returned to Independence, Missouri, where he wrote his memoirs and was actively involved in the creation and expansion of the Truman Library. Fine condition.
