CHRISTOPHER DODD. Autograph Letter signed twice: "Chris" as U.S. Senator, 1p, 6¼x8½. On personal Senate letterhead. Washington, D.C., 1988 October 11. To "Dear Pat" [Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan]. In full: "This is just a short note to express my deepest appreciation for your support during the cloture vote last Friday on the children and families package. We knew all along that passage of the Parental and Medical Leave Act and the Act for Better Child Care Services was going to be an uphill battle. But given the importance of these issues to working men and women and their families, I believe this effort was extremely worthwhile. We may have lost this year's battle, but this is a war we can and will win in the future. With your support, it is only a matter of time before we put in place child care and parental leave legislation that will not only benefit the American family but the business community and the nation as well. I look forward to working with you in the future to achieve this timely and important goal. Thank you again for your support. Sincerely," With a postscript handwritten and signed by Dodd: "Pat - Thanks for your help. Chris". Dodd, a veteran of both the Peace Corps (two years in the Dominican Republic) and the U.S. Army (six years), has represented Connecticut in the U.S. House (1975-1981) and Senate (since 1981). When the Democratic Party last enjoyed a Senate majority (2001-2003), he chaired the Committee on Rules and Administration. He is the son of former Senator Thomas J. Dodd.
