A letter from William M. Boyle to James M. Pendergast in which Boyle inquires if Pendergast would like to renew his commission as an officer in the Army for combat in the second World War. Boyle makes it clear that, "it would mean immediate duty with the possibility of such duty being in the actual combat zone." Boyle then discusses the 1942 political campaign as it pertains to Kansas City and references "the Senator" (Harry S. Truman).
