To Edward Daniel McKim, in Truman's own hand: "It was good to see you at the D meeting. My best to Mary & all the family." This follows a typed letter which reads, "Dear Ed: Thanks a lot for that 'D' Battery program. It will be placed with the Library's 'D' Battery files for preservation, and you will be listed as the donor. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness", signed "Harry Truman". - Ed McKim served under Captain Harry S. Truman in WWI, as part of Battery D (mentioned here), 129th Field Artillery Regiment, from 1917 to 1919.

Decades later, Truman would make McKim his executive assistant in the White House during his presidency. The two men were quite close, and McKim had personal involvement in urging Truman to accept the candidacy for Vice President under Roosevelt, certain at the time (quite correctly) that this would lead to Truman's own presidency. - Faint letter creases; in excellent condition..
