This letter, dated November 2, 1932 is from Louis Palenske written to his son and daughter-in-law, Victor and Irene Palenske of St. Joseph, Michigan. Palenske is discussing the impending 1932 presidential election with Franklin Roosevelt opposing President Herbert Hoover. His frustration with national politics is apparent in his frequent use of all-capitals, including in the third paragraph, "It seems the American people NEVER tell the truth in politics; we must be a NATION OF LIARS." He also discusses the country's foreign relations, particularly with England, at length. Funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission through the Kansas State Historical Records Advisory Board.
