ERB personal letter to young Danton

June 22 1944

Master Danton Burroughs
Tarzana, California.

Dear Danton:

Just two years ago today your brother arrived when our world
did not look too bright.  But you come in on the crest of a
victorious wave that is carrying us and our allies to success-
ful ending of World War II much sooner than we had expected.

If your generation shows more intelligence than past generat-
ions, perhaps there will be no more wars.  But that is almost
too much to expect.  However, there is a chance.  You have been
born into the greatest nation the world has ever known.  Keep it
great.  Keep it strong.  If you do, no country will dare to go to
war if we say no.

Put this letter away and read it June 21st 1965.  You will be of 
age then.  See then if the politicians have kept your country great
and strong.  If they haven't, do something about it.  If I'm around
I'll remind you.

            Good luck my boy,
                    Your Grandfather,

                                (sig) Edgar Rice Burroughs

January 19, 1988

Dear Mr. McWhorter:

Thanks very much for sending along the letter that you had in your collection from Edgar Rice Burroughs.  And, you're right, it still has relevance today.  It reminds me of the responsibility that we have to make this word a safer and better place for generations to come.  He had a lucky grandson, didn't he, to have much wisdom imparted at such an early age.  I hope that, looking on, Edgar Rice Burroughs knows that this country is still keeping strong and that the generation coming ... will keep the spirit that he conveyed  as well.

Sincerely,

(sig) Ronald Reagan
