Lot 36: President of the U.S. LS dated April 2, 1942 on Senate letterhead as a wartime member of the Interstate Commerce Committee to a constituent. The addressee is a former military officer seeking Truman's help in getting his commission reinstated. Truman explains here that his correspondent is not being punished by the War Dept. but that there are regulations in force that deal with the subject. He doesn't think there is a chance of success until present restrictions are removed. He wisely adds, "?and political interference in the matter is likely to do your case more harm than good." This is a fine example of Truman's straightforwardness. Punch file holes at top do not affect the text.
