“I am not for any one for a third term”

TLS, one page, 8 x .5, United States Senate letterhead, February 4, 1938. Letter to Joseph Leib. In full: “I think I made myself as plain as possible, and I am not for any one for a third term.” In very good condition, with tape-repaired partial separations to mailing folds, chipping and staple holes to edges, filing holes to the left side, and erased notations to the lower right. Truman is most likely referring to Franklin D. Roosevelt’s intention to run for an unprecedented third term as president, a campaign which would prove successful in the 1940 election. Ironically, Truman would join Roosevelt’s ticket as the vice presidential candidate in his run for a fourth term in 1944, which was victorious yet again. Truman had been vice president for less than three months when President Roosevelt passed away, upon which he assumed the presidency. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
