From Harry S. Truman to R. P. Lyons
A letter from Senator Harry S. Truman to Ready Mixed Concrete Company Vice President R. P. Lyons. After being informed that Independence Republican Lyle Weeks was awarded a contracting job by Kansas City, Truman provides a critical opinion of Weeks. However, Truman comments, "if you think it would help for me to say a word for you I will be please of course to do it." The Ready Mixed Concrete Company was closely associated with the Pendergast Machine.
