About this Item

This Indiana attorney and republican politician served as that state's 37th governor from 1945 to 1949. TNS, 1p, 8" X 10½", 10 July 1946. Addressed to not-related Arnold F. Gates (1914-93, noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar). Very good. On ornate gubernatorial letterhead, Gates transmits a copy of a speech, signing boldly in blue ballpoint. The aforementioned speech is also present, a 14-page illustrated pamphlet (4" X 9") published by The Indiana State Chamber of Commerce in 1946. Fine. Titled "When Will Congress Talk Back?" and boldly signed and inscribed by Gates on the front wrapper to Gates. Fine. In this speech delivered before the Hoosier State Press Association in 5 April 1946, Gates states his belief in taking back to the state and local level responsibilities which the federal government assumed during the Depression and war years. Unusual. Bookseller Inventory # 40730
