This letter signed by Kenesaw Mountain Landis is a fascinating snapshot of life and baseball in post-war America. Landis, baseball's first commissioner, writes to a veteran of World War 1, expressing his admiration for those who fought "over there" and briefly discussing the state of baseball, highlighting Walter Johnson, Matthewson, and Mordecai Brown as players who "made a real contribution to our society." He closes the letter with a statement that now drips with irony: "As to the future, I think the situation is such that you have no fear." The letter was sent to Walter Johnson by the vet, P. W. Reeves, and includes a brief, accompanying note. Includes PSA LOA.
