Truman Harry
Humorous Harry Truman letter with postscript about Cole Younger. Truman eyes the presidency in his 90's. "Sixteen more years, and I'll be ninety, but 1974 is an off year, and I'll have to wait until 1976 before I can run for President again."


Typed letter signed "Sincerely yours / Harry Truman", one page, 7" x 10.75". Independence, MO. May 12, 1958. To Edward D. McKim. Fine condition.



The letter is written on personal stationery, and reads:



"Dear Eddie: Sixteen more years, and I'll be ninety, but 1974 is an off year, and I'll have to wait until 1976 before I can run for President again. In that length of time, if your family's production line slows down a bit, I might have a chance to catch up with you in this grandfather business. Thank you very much for your birthday note. I appreciated your thoughtfulness, which, however, did not include giving me your new address. Please let me hear from you again before you leave for Canada. Sincerely yours, (signed) Harry S. Truman".


Then, in his hand, the former President adds: "That Cole Younger book you sent to me is mostly lies!"
