Product Description

33rd President.  Typed letter signed (TLS) “Harry” AS PRESIDENT, March 29, 1947, 7×8.5, The White House Washington stationery, to Edward McKim, in full:

I certainly appreciated very much your letter of the twenty-sixth and I understand the Federal Judge situation – don’t let it get you down.

I am hoping to be able to do something for ‘Chick’ McLaughlin.  I had him on the Indian Claims Commission and then had to take him off and work it out another way.

It looks to me like ‘7-28’ might be a good game to know.  I’ll try it out on the gang the first chance I have.

With an autograph postscript:  “My best to the family.  Hope Mary has a successful go with her orchestra.”

A fine example.

In very good condition, mailing fold.

Edward McKim served under Capt. Harry S. Truman, Battery D, 129th Field Artillery Regiment, 1917-19, and, subsequently in the U.S. Army Reserve Corps with Mr. Truman. Chief Administrative Assistant to the President (1945) and Administrative Assistant to the Federal Loan Administrator (1945); member of the Board of Directors of the Panama Canal Company, 1950-53; and close personal friend of Mr. Truman since World War I.
