Lot 664: ALS signed "Truman," one page both sides, 6.5 x 9.75, personal letterhead, September 3, 1952. Letter to noted journalist Leonard Lyons, in part: "I was so sorry to have missed you all here, and have waited all this while to write a note, but the truth is I've not been too well-at least now I feel a little less as though my head were made entirely of biscuit. I'm glad you had such a good trip; we enjoyed reading about it in that otherwise quite wretched paper, The Rome Daily American. Are you still for Eisenhower? I read his speeches with great care-and an increasing lack of enthusiasm. Stevenson is far more intelligent: not I suppose, that intelligence much impassions anyone nowadays." In fine condition, with toning to borders of front page.
