Truman’s Note of Reply the Day Japan Agreed to Surrender (August 14, 1945)


AUGUST 14, 1945

My dear Governor:

I appreciated very highly your telegram of August thirteenth, but by the time you receive this letter the settlement will have been made and I think it is one with which we can all agree.

Sincerely yours,
Harry Truman (signature)

The Honorable Millard F. Caldwell
Governor of Florida
