The New York Congressman writes this letter to New York Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan on his personalized Congressional letterhead, saying that he regretted "friction" with him. It was obtained directly from Moynihan's estate!

Autograph Letter signed: "Jack" in black ink. One page, 7x8¾, affixed to 8½x11 sheet. On personal House letterhead. Place: Washington, D.C., no date. Addressed to: “Dear Senator" [Daniel Patrick Moynihan]. In full: "It comes to my attention that you & your staff are upset with me for introducing, what I perceive to be, one of the best privacy & foreign policy initiatives of this session. Please be assured that I take full responsibility and that the reason was a sincere attempt on my part to lend support to what is clearly your issue. Indeed, in our remarks you were given all the credit for the initiative & I took it as pro-forma that good legislation is co-sponsored every day of the session. I regret the friction I've caused between our offices & as you must have heard by now, I've been an admirer of yours in public as well as private conversations. Very truly yours." Jack French Kemp (1935-2009) was an American Republican politician, collegiate and professional football player. He served as Housing Secretary in the administration of President George H. W. Bush from 1989 to 1993, having previously served nine terms as a congressman for Western New York's 31st congressional district from 1971 to 1989. He was the Republican Party's nominee for Vice President in the 1996 election, where he was running mate of presidential nominee Bob Dole; Kemp had previously contended for the presidential nomination in the 1988 Republican primaries. Jack Kemp was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009 by President Barack Obama. Daniel Patrick Moynihan (1927-2003) served four terms in the U.S. Senate (1977-2001) as a Democrat representing New York. A prolific author, Moynihan held positions in the administrations of four Presidents: Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and Ford. Clear mounting tape on all four edges, covering "Jac" of signature. Estate inventory numbers stamped on left of mounting sheet and penciled in upper right of letter. Staple holes in letter's upper left corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
