Description: 1 page, 8.75 x 6.75 inches, on White House letterhead, Washington, D.C., July 29, 1950. Important memorandum, signed "H.S.T." to Dr. Steelman, regarding the organization of the Presidential office, in part: "...We have tried Cabinet Committees with small success. The National Security Resources Board, the National Security Council and two Cabinet meetings a week seem to have solved most of the difficulties. Those difficulties are also exceedingly fewer than they were when we had all the super-agencies piled on top of the government. Between you, Mr. Harrington and Stuart Symington we ought to be able to accomplish the purposes which we originally set out to accomplish in the organization of the office of the President. Sometime or other I want to sit down with you and outline the differences between the present setup and the one in operation in 1939 and then really set out what happened when the super-agencies were imposed on the Presidential Office." Faint paper clip stain along the top margin; one horizontal fold. Very good condition.

I have to congratulate you and Argosy Book store. I have received "Fêtes Galantes" very promptly on Thursday and had no tax to pay (very rare 'cause French customs are very greedy when parcels arrived from the States). Love to do business with you ! Best regards - M.A.
