        President Truman sends his Treasury Secretary John W. Snyder two checks totaling $50,000 and tells him to ?invest them in Government Bonds in the same manner you did before.?

      "John W. Snyder?s close friendship with Harry S. Truman began in 1928 when Truman was a County Judge. They served together in the U.S. Army Reserves after World War I. Lt. Col. Snyder was in Col. Truman?s Missouri Regiment, the 381st Field Artillery, 102nd Division. Snyder served President Truman as his Federal Loan Administrator (1945), Director of the Office of Mobilization and Reconversion (1945-1946), and Secretary of the Treasury (1946-1953).Typed Letter Signed ?Harry S Truman? as President, one page, 7? x 9?. The White House, Washington, August 31, 1951. On pale green White House stationery. To Honorable John W. Snyder, Secretary of the Treasury. Fine condition.In full, ?I am enclosing you two checks which come to a total of Fifty Thousand ($50,000) Dollars. I?ll appreciate it most highly if you will invest them in Government Bonds in the same manner you did before.?Accompanied by a 5? x 3? slip of paper upon which the President boldly penned, ?John:- / Here it is / HST.? Two tiny staple holes in the upper left corner suggest this note may have been stapled to the two checks.On May 16, 1949, in a nationwide address from the White House, President Truman said in part, ?The practice of buying Government bonds goes back to the earliest days of our Republic. One hundred and sixty years ago Alexander Hamilton, the first Secretary of the Treasury, appealed to the wealthy people of the country to invest in securities of the Government. There were two reasons why his appeal was addressed to the wealthy. In the first place, there were few persons in those days who had funds that they could invest in bonds. Secondly, these wealthy people had great influence; and Hamilton wanted them to have a stake in the success of the Federal Government so they would give it their support.We have come a long way since that time. The Federal Government, whose very survival was then uncertain, is today the safest place in the world in which to invest money. Furthermore, it is no longer just a wealthy few who are able to buy Government bonds. Today, millions of Americans--farmers, workers, and professional people, as well as merchants and bankers--own Government bonds...?"

        The Childermass

      London: Chatto and Windus,, 1928. Section 1. Octavo. Original yellow cloth, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Spine gently rolled, contents slightly foxed; an excellent copy in the mildly foxed jacket that has a chip to rear panel, a short closed tear to foot of front panel and head of spine, and a toned spine. First edition, first impression. Number 23 of a limited edition of 231 numbered and signed copies. Chatto & Windus paid Lewis a £200 advance for the complete Childermass, but his failure to produce volumes II and III resulted in a lawsuit. The contract was eventually transferred to Methuen, and the complete trilogy was not published until 1955, when Methuen published Monstre Gai and Malign Fiesta in a single volume. Collectively, these three books constitute Lewis's longest single fictive work and are together titled The Human Age.

Maxfield Parrish expressed his pleasure that his son had "a haven like the Sargents' at Greenwich." Commented on events in Windsor and activities of friends and acquaintances. Signed "Dad."

The Confessions is an autobiographical book by Jean-Jacques Rousseau. In modern times, it is often published with the title The Confessions of Jean-Jacques Rousseau in order to distinguish it from Saint Augustine's Confessions. Covering the first fifty-three years of Rousseau's life, up to 1765, it was completed in 1769, but was not published until 1782, four years after Rousseau's death, even though Rousseau did read excerpts of his manuscript publicly at various salons and other meeting places.

      Radio Corporation of America, 1928. Stapled Binding. Near Fine. Wear to slipcase corners, booklets in exceptional condition. 1928 Stapled Binding. Five stapled binding softcovers in original wrappers, with slipcase. Published from a series of lectures delivered at Harvard University Business School in April 1928. A fairly early example of radio ephemera (broadcasts to the general public began in the later months of 1920). OCLC shows only 1 match for three titles (2 and 3 matches for the two others), these at the Harvard Business School itself, so it is likely these were not produced for distribution (the other sources are the New York Public Library and Yale). An exceptionally rare and important collection of early technology ephemera, particularly interesting for the volume dealing with the use of radio during World War I.

        President Truman writes his Secretary of the Treasury John W. Snyder, praising his newly elected Vice President Alben W. Barkley declaring that ?no President could have a finer or more capable partner than I will have ? a respected leader among all persons in all sections of this Nation ? he will be my strong right arm??

      "John W. Snyder?s close friendship with Harry S. Truman began in 1928 when Truman was a County Judge. They served together in the U.S. Army Reserves after World War I. Lt. Col. Snyder was in Col. Truman?s Missouri Regiment, the 381st Field Artillery, 102nd Division. Snyder served President Truman as his Federal Loan Administrator (1945), Director of the Office of Mobilization and Reconversion (1945-1946), and Secretary of the Treasury (1946-1953).Typed Letter Signed ?Harry S Truman? as President, one page, 8? x 10.5?. The White House, Washington, December 15, 1948. To ?Honorable John W. Snyder / Secretary of the Treasury / Washington, D.C.? Faint browning mark in left portion. Never folded. Fine condition. Typed ?COPY? in the upper left, this letter was signed ink by President Truman. The original signed letter to Snyder on White House stationery, most probably accompanying this letter, was presented to Barkley.In full, ?I am proud to be able to send a message to the gathering which honors Vice President-Elect Alben W. Barkley at Town Hall tonight and I wish that I were able to tell all of you in person what I think of Alben W. Barkley. I know that no President could have a finer or more capable partner than I will have in the four years that lie ahead. Senator Barkley?s leadership in the Senate and his skill as a legislator have won him an admiration all over the Nation which crosses party lines and makes Senator Barkley a respected leader among all persons in all sections of this Nation. I know that he will be my strong right arm as all of us in America tackle the problems that lie ahead and join together in our efforts to build a just peace and to continue to demonstrate to the world that our brand of democracy and our free enterprise economy are the best way of life. Tonight I honor Senator Barkley for the efforts he has made towards those goals in the past and for the further service to those goals that he will give as Vice President.?Accompanied by a photocopy of the article in the December 16, 1948, edition of ?The New York Times? headlined ?Barkley Is Praised / By Chief Executive,? subheaded ?Vice President-Elect Hailed as / ?Good Right Arm? at Dinner / Honoring Him Here.? In part, ?President Truman called Vice President-elect Alben W. Barkley the ?finest and most capable partner any President ant President could ever have.? He declared that Senator Barkley would be his ?good right arm? in the work ahead to make the nation and the world peaceful and prosperous. The President?s eulogy of his running-mate in the last campaign was in the form of a message read at a dinner honoring Senator Barkley, given by Town Hall Associates, at the Waldorf-Astoria last night. Senator Barkley is to receive the Town Hall award for distinguished service at Town Hall at 11 o?clock this morning. The dinner was attended by 1,500 persons, and the dais seated a large number of high-ranking Democrats, including four members of the Cabinet and half a dozen Senators or Senators-elect...? The article mentions the names of six speakers, in addition to Barkley, who spoke, including John W. Snyder."
