Letter from Jerry Hall


April 12, 1951
2 Treestone Ave
Cromwell, Conn.

Dear President Truman,

We are in the sixth grade of the Nathaniel White School. Every morning that we go to school we have News Reports from the boys and girls in the class. The teacher has given us her opinion and I think it is a very good one.

And I do so much want your opinion on the matter of General MacArthur and why he has lost his job in Korea.

Your truly,

Fredie Duval
Jerry Hall
