HARRY S TRUMAN
TLS sending thanks for a copy of George Washington's rules of conduct: "These rules hold as true today as they did in his time and I am glad to have them.", signed by Truman with a very rare signature
Typed Letter Signed: "Harry S. Truman", 1p, 7¼x10½. Independence, Missouri, 1971 August 27. To Mr. Charles Schaeffer, East Ridge, Tennessee. In full: "Thank you for the rules of conduct, listed by George Washington. These rules hold as true today as they did in his time and I am glad to have them. With best wishes, Sincerely yours," Truman (1884-1972), a WWI combat veteran; former haberdasher; elected Jackson County, Missouri executive; and U.S. Senator (1935-1945), was elected Vice President for the fourth term of Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1944. He assumed the presidency in April 1945, following the sudden death of FDR. During his first term, Truman ordered the use of atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki (August 1945), forcing a Japanese surrender and the end of WWII (1939-1945). His policies included the Fair Deal domestic program, the Marshall Plan to speed European recovery, and the Truman Doctrine to aid nations threatened by communism. He claimed that his policies had averted a severe recession like that which followed World War I. After his stunning 1948 defeat of Republican challenger Thomas E. Dewey, Truman oversaw the foundation of NATO (April 1949) and sent troops to South Korea to repel the North Korean invasion (June 1950). After leaving the White House, Truman returned to Missouri, where he wrote his memoirs and was actively involved in the creation of the Truman Library. A poll of over 750 historians and political scientists ranked Truman the seventh greatest US President. Fold creases not near signature. Fine condition.
