From Harry S. Truman to James M. Pendergast
Photocopy of a letter from President Harry S. Truman to James M. Pendergast in Kansas City. After learning that James had sided in opinion with one of Truman's political adversaries, Truman sends a heated letter, mentioning that he never thought it to "be necessary for me to ask a Pendergast to make a choice between an upstart little Rabbit and the President of the United States." Truman ends the letter saying, "[Roger] Slaughter is obnoxious to me and you must make your choice." The Harry S. Truman Library and Museum does not hold the original document.
