    Post-Presidential Harry Truman Autograph Letter Signed. One page on personal letterhead, 7" x 10.5", Kansas City, Missouri, August 25, 1954, to Gib Crockett, no location, likely Washington, D.C. The letter reads: "I'd like the original of this cartoon for my Library collection. You are right about the "Do Nothing" - but there were enough Democrats in this Congress to put through some - I say some good legislation!" Light edge browning with a trivial stain along the lower margin, two horizontal mailing creases. Very good condition with bold signature and text. Writing to a respected Washington Star editorial cartoonist, Truman is here referring to the politically polarized and highly contentious 80th Congress of 1947-1949.
