ALS, one page, 6.5 x 8.5, personal letterhead, July 24, 1958. Letter to the Hon. Robert P. Weatherford, the mayor of Truman's hometown, Independence, Missouri. In full: "I've been to France, New York, Long Island and other places. I've had some rest. But rest is not what I need. I want Robert Weatherford nominated and elected to the Congress from the 4th District of Missouri. But don't miss a town, city or county outside Jackson. You don't have to worry about your home county. Here is something that may help. If you need more put in a good sized yell and you'll get it." In very good to fine condition, with envelope-related toning. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope addressed in Truman's hand.
