Letter to Miss Keller from Harry S. Truman (October 8, 1957, copy)

Transcription of Letter


October 8, 1957

Dear Miss Keller:

I read your letter of September 30th, with much interest.

I have always been interested and have tried to help in the matter in which you are so vitally interested.

I am enclosing you a small check as a contribution to what you are trying to do. I wish it could be for a larger amount but it just isn't possible at this time.

Sincerely yours,

/s/ Harry Truman
