On personal letterhead to "Dear Mrs. Lally", in full: "I so much appreciated your letter and hearing of your Ronald Reagan memorabilia collection. I am sure it has given you great pleasure. Thank you for thinking of me. Warmly". Barbara (Pierce) Bush (1925-2018)married future US President George Bush in 1945, following his return from decorated World War II service. Strong-willed and dedicated to her husband, she held the Bush household of five children together through more than four decades, 68 countries and all 50 states while George worked as an oil industry executive, Texas Congressman, United Nations Ambassador, Republican Party Chairman, U.S.-China Liaison Office Chief, Central Intelligence Agency Director and Vice President. Their hard work paid off when Bush was elected as the 41st U.S. President in November 1988, the first incumbent Vice President to do so since Martin Van Buren in 1836. Besides leading the national fight against illiteracy, the First Lady offered invaluable support to the President throughout the long months of Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm (August 1990-March 1991). The couple's children include 43rd U.S. President George W. Bush and Florida Governor John Ellis "Jeb" Bush." Barbara Bush, with her sensible, down-to earth manner was an enormously popular First Lady. In addition to her many duties, she crusaded against illiteracy and supported programs to help the homeless and fight drug abuse. The first woman since Abigail Adams to be wife of one President and mother of another, she is the only First Lady to witness her son's presidential inauguration. Normal mailing fold. Lightly toned. Fine condition.
