GENERAL HEADQUARTERS
SUPREME COMMANDER FOR THE ALLIED POWERS
OFFICE OF THE SUPREME COMMANDER

19 November 1949

Dear Hartle:

I have just noticed an article in your local paper indicating that you are entering the political arena. This is good news. Our country needs men of such sound balance, wide experience and proven integrity at this critical period in our existence. While I would not venture to advise the Maryland constituency on any question dealing with politics, as one of your oldest friends I do wish you every possible degree of success in this new field of activity. I am sure your host of friends in the Far East would join me in such a thought.

With cordial regard and best wishes.

Very faithfully,

[signed]

DOUGLAS MacARTHUR

Major General Russell P. Hartle,
US Army Retired
673 Oak Hill,
Hagerstown, Maryland.
