Two TLSs, each one page, FBI letterhead, dated 1949 and 1966. The first, to John F. Ballenger, dated September 8, 1949, in part: "I have been advised of your appearance before the Forty-second Session of the FBI National Academy…I have also been informed that due to the inability of Colonel Charles H. Schoeffel of the New Jersey State Police to appear with you, that you took that entire four hours allotted to the subject of 'Riots and Unlawful Assemblies.' I just wanted to thank you for arranging to come up from Florida to be with us." The second, to Stanley Slota, dated March 15, 1966, in part: "Your kind comments and best wishes are indeed appreciated. In response to your request, it is a pleasure to forward, under separate cover, one of my photographs which I have autographed for you." In fine condition.
