ELLIOT RICHARDSON
Accepting congratulations on becoming Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, the first of his record-setting four Cabinet appointments!
Typed Letter signed: "Elliot L. Richardson" as Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, 1 page, 6½x9. Washington, D.C., 1970 July 7. On official letterhead to Walter H. Bieringer, Executive Vice President, Plymouth Rubber Company, Canton, Massachusetts. In full: "Many thanks for your very thankful letter of congratulations! I warmly appreciate your encouragement. There's a lot to be done at HEW, and while I'm looking forward to my assignment here with some exhilaration, I was nonetheless keenly disappointed to leave the Department of State. With deep appreciation and warm regard, sincerely". Elliot Richardson (1920-1999), formerly Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General of Massachusetts, was Nixon's Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare from June 24, 1970 until February 2, 1973, when he was named Secretary of Defense. He served until May 25, 1973, when he was sworn in as Attorney General. On October 20, 1973, President Nixon ordered Attorney General Richardson to dismiss Special Watergate Prosecutor Archibald Cox, who had rejected Nixon's compromise to supply summaries of the "Watergate tapes".

He served in this, his record fourth Cabinet post from February 2, 1976 to January 20, 1977. Mailing fold through center. Fine condition.
