Title

Letter from President Harry S. Truman to Melvin M. Johnson, 1947 August 16

Description

A letter from President Harry S. Truman to Sovereign Grand Commander Melvin M. Johnson. Dated August 16 1947. In this letter, Truman acknowledges the condolences sent to him by “a Deputy for one of the Mexican states who represents the Supreme Council of Mexico,” most likely sent because of the recent death of Truman’s mother. Truman also writes that he agrees with Johnson’s refusal to aid Boston city Mayor James Curley, who had been charged with committing mail fraud. Curley was sentenced to Federal prison, and eventually, his sentence commuted by Truman.
