Description: 

Letter from Harry S. Truman to James A. Reed in which Truman expresses why he is upset with Reed. Although Truman knows Reed has great respect for him, Truman is disheartened that Reed remains publicly neutral in his preference between Truman and Charles M. Howell as a 1932 senatorial candidate. Truman claims, "I believe that I can win, despite Howell's candidacy and despite your neutrality." Truman then provides reasons why he believes Reed's support of Howell goes against Reed's interests.
