    Harry S. Truman Typed Letter as Senator Typed letter signed, "Harry Truman," 8" x 10.5" on Senate letterhead, Washington, August 10, 1944 to Max Abelman thanking him for his congratulations on the news of his recent nomination as Vice President. Truman writes in full, "I cannot tell you how much I appreciated your letter of congratulations. I didn't know I had so many friends until this happened. I have been snowed under with letters and telegrams, hence the delay in thanking you." Truman received the nomination for Vice President at the Democratic National Convention (July 19 - 21, 1944) after party conservatives demanded a replacement for the left-leaning Wallace. Truman proved to be an acceptable compromise candidate between the Northern and Southern wings of the party. File holes along left margin, otherwise in near perfect condition. Wonderful historical association from the man who would soon become President. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
