Harry Truman sends a typed letter of thanks for the pictures and letter.
Typed Letter Signed: "Harry Truman", 1p, 7¼x10½. Independence, Missouri, 1963 October 21. To Mr. William B. Arthur, Managing Editor, LOOK, Cowles Magazines and Broadcasting, Inc., New York. In full: "You were as kind and thoughtful as you can be to send me that clipping from Look with the pictures of World War veterans - particularly, World War I. Of course, I didn't have any difficulty in recognizing No.8. That is the way I looked when I was in command of a Battery in the First World War. I will be looking forward to the November 5th, issue and will wonder how many members of my former Battery will recognize the old man at this late date. There are only about 70 or 80 of them still alive. Thanks a lot for your consideration. I appreciate it most highly. Sincerely yours," A few weeks after landing in France in April 1918, Truman was made Captain and given command of Battery D of the Second Battalion of the 129th Field Artillery. By September 1918, he was taking part in the fighting in the Argonne Forest, and in October his unit joined with the 35th Division, firing on the German-held city of Metz. Truman had entered military service as a Lieutenant in a National Guard artillery company that was taken into the regular service in August 1917. He was mustered out of service in May 1918, shortly after being promoted to Major. Rust paper clip stain in upper left blank margin, overall, fine condition.
