Unsent Letter from President Harry S. Truman to Unknown Recipient, February 13, 1952. President's Secretary's Files - Longhand Notes.

Feb. 13, 1952

Dear Tassm:

This is a most interesting article. When a United States Senator has to make his campaign on an individual platform opposed to the head of his party in a great Democratic State, things have come to a pretty pass.

This newspaper you are trying to appease is a sabotage sheet in the same class as Bertie McCormick's sewer sheets in Chicago and Washington. I am sorry to lose your friendship.

Sincerely Harry
