DescriptionLouis Howe: Two Typed Letters Signed "Louis McH Howe" and One Unsigned Memo to Roosevelt.
-Two TLsS: March 10 & March 18, 1933. Washington, D.C. One page each. 6" x 9.25", White House letterhead.
-Memo: August 29, 1933. Washington, D.C. One page. 5.25" x 8", White House letterhead.
-Generally fine or better condition. Small piece of tape on memo.
The two TLsS in this lot have routine content- thanking William McDonald of Keyser, West Virginia for a message of congratulations, and forwarding an autographed item to Carleton W. Hubbard of Greenwich, Connecticut. The memo is much more interesting. Howe writes: "Memo to the President:-/ Dear Boss:-/ Here is some light reading. These gentlemen appeared as a Committee. They are the bunch that raised Hell over in Johnson's office./ They come over to see me, but my Assistant Secretary, Miss Wamsley, whom I have promoted to the job as 'official vamp' as in the old Navy days, hypnotized them into going away perfectly satisfied without a murmur./ L. Howe."
