Letter from Democrat Albert R. Norton to Senator Harry S. Truman. Norton reintroduces himself as a former Pendergast ("goat") precinct captain in the 14th Ward in Kansas City, Missouri. He states that he could no longer be proud of such affiliation and became a United Democratic Club precinct captain. Norton then inquires about the possibility of a job in city administration as he had just recently been fired from a Republican office because of his political affiliation.
