From James M. Pendergast to Kathleen Pendergast
Photocopy of a letter from James M. Pendergast to his wife Kathleen Pendergast. James recounts the details of John Lazia's funeral which the local newspapers believe to be Kansas City's largest funeral gathering. He then updates Kathleen on his trip to Monroe County and on his upcoming trip with Harry S. Truman to Cameron, Missouri. The letter is written on Jackson Democratic Club letterhead that also includes Harry S. Truman and T. J. Pendergast as members of the executive board. The Harry S. Truman Library and Museum does not hold the original document.
