Congressman LBJ sends a letter about the progress of H. R. 4269.
Typed Letter Signed: "Lyndon", 1p, 8x10½. House of Representatives, Committee on Naval Affairs, Washington, D.C., 1944 March 14. To Mr. W. E. Long, Manager, Chamber of Commerce, Austin, Texas. In full: "I have just received and carefully read your nice letter of March 11th concerning H. R. 4269, which was introduced by Mr. Overton Brooks a friend of mine of Shreveport, Louisiana. Yesterday afternoon I got together with him and had a long talk with him about his bill. Later I talked to the Chairman of the Military Affairs Committee about the possibility of starting hearings on this measure and trying to get some legislation considered. Brooks told me this morning that hearings would begin this afternoon on the measure he has introduced, but even Brooks is not sure that his bill is the best proposal that can be offered to renedy [sic] the situation. All of us are very sympathetic to some action being taken and I am going to follow it very closely and do everything I can to be helpful. In the meantime, I wish you would spread this word along among our friends down there and let me know if there is anything further I can do. You may be sure of my continued interest. Sincerely," Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908-1973), the 36th President of the U.S. (1963-1969), had served as U.S. Representative from Texas (1937-1949), U.S. Senator from Texas (1949-1961 -- Senate Majority Whip, 1951-1953; Minority Leader, 1953-1955; Majority Leader, 1955-1961) and JFK's Vice President (1961-1963). When President Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963, LBJ was sworn in as President aboard Air Force One. In 1964, he was elected for a full four-year term, but did not seek reelection in 1968. Pencil notes in unidentified hand in blank areas. Staple holes and rust stain at upper left corner. Fold creases not near signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
