Letter from 10th Ward Precinct Captains Ralph Hickman and Edward Lamasney to their constituents before the 1940 primary election. Hickman asserts "that all Democratic candidates are good citizens and worthy of the offices for which they have filed." However, Hickman includes with the letter a sample democratic primary ballot that indicates which Democrats the Tenth Ward Democratic Club, Inc. and the Tenth Ward Regular Democratic Club would like their members to vote for. This includes Harry S. Truman for Senator in Congress for Missouri. Hickman encourages the recipients to bring this sample ballot with them to the voting booth.
