President Truman types a letter of thanks to Honorable Overton Brooks thanking him for a picture he sent for Truman's birthday and apologizing for not being able to make an appointment
Typed Letter signed: "Harry Truman" as President, 1p, 6¾x8¾. Washington, D.C., 1950 May 26. On White House letterhead to Honorable Overton Brooks, House of Representatives, Washington, D.C. In full: "Thanks very much for the picture which you sent me for my birthday. I am sorry I've been so covered up that we couldn't make the appointment which you asked for but I don't think I've had such a busy time since I have been here. That picture brought back some memories of quite a trip and a successful one. I think. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your sending it to me. Sincerely yours". Accompanied by unsigned matching envelope (7¼x4¾). 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 of the Truman Library. Slightly creased. Fold crease not at signature. Fine condition.
