Former President Truman Grateful to President Kennedy

Nov. 5, 1961 - Former President Harry S. Truman was grateful for the White House hospitality shown to him a few days ago. President Kennedy said he was appreciative, too. “It’s good to have one ex-President who will say something nice about me,” he told Mr. Truman. When Mr. Truman sat down at the piano after the White House dinner in his honor, President Kennedy remarked: “Don’t tell me there is no justice in the world. Stalin has been kicked out of Lenin’s tomb, and President Truman is back in the White House.”
