Typed Letter Signed: "Harry" as U.S. Senator and Democratic nominee for Vice President, 1p, 8x10½. Washington, D.C., 1944 August 8. To Edward D. McKim, Omaha, Nebraska. In full: "I certainly was glad to get all three of your letters and appreciated every one of them. I am so happy that Larry came out all right, and I am more than glad Ed is safe. I do hope you can make that National Committeeman connection, and if I make the grade on my end of the thing we will certainly show them how in Nebraska. I read the clipping about Ed written by Leonard Welch with a great deal of interest. I always knew he had it in him. Keep me informed of the progress of things and when the campaign starts I want you to go with me." In a postscript, Truman pens: "My best to Mary. The madam was sorry she did [not] see her." The "madam" was Truman's wife, Bess.EDWARD D.

Three weeks before this letter was written, at the Democratic National Convention held in Chicago, July 19-21, 1944, Missouri Senator HARRY S TRUMAN was nominated as FDR's running mate.
