Typed note signed "Lloyd Bentsen" as United States Senator in blue ink. 1 page, 5¼x8, on United States Senate stationery. In full: "Memo from the desk of... LLOYD BENTSEN It is a pleasure to send you the enclosure. Call upon me again when I can help." Lightly creased. Signature touches typed portion or note. Show-through from impression left edge (does not touch signature). Paper loss on verso (no show-through). Otherwise in fine condition. Accompanied by: Unsigned photograph of Bentsen. B/w, 7¾x10 overall, 7¼x9¼, one surface. Lightly toned, creased and bowed. Tape remnants in corners. Left edge is irregular and lightly dented. Paper loss on verso (no show-through). Otherwise in fine condition. In 1970, attorney and World War II veteran Bentsen (1921-2006), who had been a U. S. Representative from Texas from 1948 to 1955, defeated George H. W. Bush to become U. S. Senator from Texas, serving from 1971 to 1993. In 1988, he was Michael Dukakis' running mate for Vice President, becoming noted for a remark to Republican vice presidential nominee Dan Quayle, who compared his Congressional experience to that of John F. Kennedy. Bentsen's retort: "Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy. I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy." Although the Dukakis/Bentsen team was soundly defeated by the Bush/Quayle ticket, Bentsen would later serve as Clinton's Secretary of the Treasury from 1993 to 1994.
