This democratic Indiana politician served as that state's 35th governor from 1937 to 1941. TNS, 1p, 8" X 10½", 20 December 1937. Addressed to Arnold F. Gates (1914-93, noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar). Near fine. On "State of Indiana / Executive Department" letterhead, Townsend sends a signed card and boldly signs this note with his initials in blue ink. The card is present, a heavy stock 5" X 3" card signed in full with "Governor Indiana" penned beneath and, surprisingly, his projected years in office below that: "1937-41." Really, REALLY odd that this politician seems to be anticipating so early in his term in office that he wouldn't be running for reelection! And he was right -- he was indeed a one-term wonder.
