Signing as Secretary of Agriculture on this typed letter to a friend regarding confidence and enthusiasm
Typed Letter Signed: "Bob Bergland" as Secretary of Agriculture, 1p, 8½x11. Washington, D.C., 1977 January 31. To Ms. Toni Currin, Dillon, S.C. In part: "The confidence and enthusiasm of friends like you is not only encouraging, but is as heartwarming to me as the trust President Carter has chosen to place in me. As I leave the familiar atmosphere of Congress, I hope I can count on your continued support…."  Farmer Bob Bergland (b. 1928) represented Minnesota in Congress from 1971-1977 when he resigned just nine days before writing this letter to become Carter's only Secretary of Agriculture (1977-1981).

Lightly creased. 1½x1-inch stain at top right corner. Pinhead-size stain at lower right corner. Fine condition.
