Document for April 12th:
Letter from Harry S. Truman to Mrs. George P. Wallace, 04/12/1945
This letter was dictated by Truman before President Roosevelt's death later that same day. Vice-President Truman prophetically informs his sister-in-law, May Wallace, that he has more work than he has ever had in the past and seems to have less time to complete it. A handwritten note by Truman at the bottom tells her that the letter was dictated "before the world fell in on me....you know what a blow it was. But - I must meet it."
