Truman, Harry S. Group of 11 Harry Truman Signed Letters. Independence, Mo., 1962-1970. Group of eleven letters typed and signed by the former President. Two letters contain additional manuscript messages. All are addressed to Matthew J. Connelly, his former appointments secretary. Many of the letters acknowledge receipt of messages from Mr. Connelly, such as â€œIt is especially comforting to hear from those with whom I was associated during a very interesting period in my lifeâ€ or â€œYou donâ€™t know how very much I appreciated your birthday message. It was one of the very nicest ones that I received. I am always glad to hear from you on any occasion.â€ There are several letters in which Truman extends his greetings to Mr. Connelly. Together with a free frank envelope dated January 24, 1962. Very good.
