Letter from Eleanor Roosevelt to Harry S. Truman

Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt The Park Sheraton Hotel 202 Fifty Sixth Street West New York 19, N.Y. November 6, 1952 Dear Mr. President: I will hope to get down to Washington some time before Christmas to report to you on my visit to Chile and on anything else that turns up in the General Assembly. In the meantime I want to thank you for the many opportunities you have given me for service during your administrations. I know that after the great efforts you put into the campaign it must be a keen disappointment to you but I think we were against impossible odds, especially the feeling many people had that they want their boys home from Korea. I am afraid General Eisenhower will not be able to fulfill the hopes of these people, and it may be difficult for him in consequence. I like your offer of your own plane to go immediately to Korea. With every good wish, Very cordially yours, [signed: "Eleanor Roosevelt"]
