Letter from Natalie Sharp


Dear Mr. Truman,

I am writing this letter to ask you one simple question. Why did you fire General MacArthur? If it won't be to much trouble I would like to have you write me an answer. You may take this as a sassy letter but I certainly don't mean it that way.

My address is:

Miss Natalie Sharp
R. #1 Box 169
Mapleton, Maine

P.S.
You don't have to answer this if you don't want to because I know you are a bust man.

Another thing is that I enjoyed the songs your daughter sang Monday night on the Railroad Hour.

Sincerely,

Natalie Sharp
