Lot 94: TLS, one page, 7.25 x 10.5, personal letterhead, September 1, 1950. Letter to Admiral Lewis Strauss, in part: "I would be pleased to have you join me for dinner in the Pillement Suite at the Waldorf Astoria on Monday, November 13th at 7:30 o'clock—business suit. In addition to yourself, I am inviting about sixteen others—a list of whom I enclose. The reason for this little get together is to consider what might be done in respect to one phase of reducing inflation dangers. There is need to secure public support for reduction and postponement of non-military expenditures which have increased in the Federal, State and local levels by about $22 billion since 1939. Part of this increase is of course necessary." Includes a carbon copy of the aforementioned guest list. In fine condition, with a crease, staple holes, and a pencil notation in an unknown hand to upper left corner, and a trivial paperclip impression to top edge.
