Coleman of Providence, R.I. on April 16, 1945, to say that The Times has no plans to reprint the editorial in another form "but would be glad to give you our permission to reprint it in a small pamphlet, with credit to The Times, for the purposes described in your letter".The powerful editorial, dated April 13, 1945, mourns the passing of Roosevelt, praising his leadership during World War II: "A great and gallant wartime leader has died almost in the very hour of the victory to which he led the way. It is a cruel and bitter irony that Franklin D. Roosevelt should not have lived to see the Allied armies march into Berlin. It is a hard and stunning blow to lose the genius and the inspiration of his leadership in this decisive moment of the war."We have not been able to locate any other reprint of the editorial. Rare.

Item Description: Headquarters Seventeenth Armored Group, APO 403: 14 May, 1945., 1945. Book Condition: Very good. - sc Approximately 70 words typed on a 10-1/2 inch high by 8 inch wide sheet, attesting to the Chemical Mortar Battalion's outstanding service as part of the Corps Area Defense Command during the period of April 14 through May 12th, 1945. Signed in blue ink by William P. Withers as "Colonel, Cavalry / Commanding". The page is slightly darkened throughout with offsetting from a sheet of note paper which was likely once attached to the top left of the letter. Folded for mailing with 2 holes punched at the top and a couple of pinholes. The letter is stapled to the retained carbon copy of the commendation, issued by S. Leroy Irwin, Major General, U.S. Army, Commanding, dated 24 May 1945. Unique. Upon graduating from West Point, William Price Withers (1896-1978) was commissioned into the Cavalry. He earned the Silver Star for his service with the 4th Armored Division during WWII. He became the Commanding Officer of the 17th Armored Group of Patton's 12th Corps, where he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal.Relieved from assignment with the Fifteenth U.S. Army on April 8th, 1945 and reassigned to the Third Army in Germany, the 97th Chemical Mortar Battalion hurried to catch up to the advancing cavalry. They were, by then, attached to the XII Corps, when Lt. Gen. George S. Patton traveling on the autobahn between Frankfurt am Main and Erfurt commended Capt. McCreanor on the appearance and march discipline of their convoy. During this period, the battalion was used as part of the Corps Area Defense Command defending the rear areas against attacks by parties of German troops bypassed in the rapid advance of American forces. In that capacity, the battalion was charged with guarding of captured German hospitals and preventing wounded German soldiers from joining resistance units or guerilla groups led by SS troops. It was also the battalion's duty to protect installations containing food, arms, airplanes, airplane parts and machine parts from attack by German guerillas. Provenance: From the Estate of Charles Dornbusch, the military bibliographer. Bookseller Inventory # 30551
