The year he left the White House, Truman signs a typed letter to a friend on personal matters, including bad news about his former driver on election campaigns
Typed Letter signed: "Harry Truman", 1 page, 7½x3¾. Kansas City, Missouri, 1953 July 28. On personal letterhead to Roy H. Webb, Burbank, California. In full: "Thanks a lot for those photostats. I am more than happy to have them. I am certainly sorry to hear about Hunter Allen. Lt. Haupt made good in the discovery of George's address. I talked to him over the telephone and wrote him a letter just the other day. I hope you have a successful trip this time and that you will stay there until they force you out. I suppose by this time you have received my letter with a letter of introduction to Ed Pauley. Sincerely yours." Roy Webb, a personal friend of Truman's, visited the President several times in the White House. Hunter Allen, an Army friend from World War I, was Truman's personal driver in the 1930s, crisscrossing the state with him during the US Senate campaigns of 1934 and 1940. Edwin W. Pauley, an oil company executive, served in the FDR and Truman administrations, coordinating petroleum sales under Lend Lease and helping to renegotiate reparations agreements after World War II. In the 1950s, he engaged in joint oil ventures with Howard Hughes and future President George H. W. Bush, founding Pauley Petroleum. As a Regent of the University of California/Berkeley, he supported Governor Ronald Reagan's efforts to crack down on student protests in the 1960s. Lightly toned. Mailing folds, not at signature. Irregular lower edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
