Typed Letter signed: "Harry Truman" as President, 1p, 7x8¾. Washington, D.C., 1951 December 22. On White House letterhead to Roy H. Webb, Burbank, California. In full: "Your note of the sixteenth did not reach me until yesterday. It got tangled up in the mail somewhere. When you come back to Washington call up as I would be glad to see you. I hope you have a Merry Christmas. Sincerely yours". 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. The addressee, Roy Webb, was an old friend of the President. The Presidential logs show that Webb heldtwo "off the record" chats with Truman during a visit to Washington in September 1951. Fine condition.
