Typed letter signed: "J K Javits" as U.S. Senator, 1p, 8x10½. Washington, D.C., 1977 May 24. To Captain Kurt Byrd. In full: "Thank you for your recent letter regarding the status of the sick pay exclusion bill. That bill, H.R. 1828, was added as an amendment to H.R. 3477, the omnibus tax bill. The tax bill, and the amendment included, passed the House and the Senate and became Public Law 95-30 on May 23, 1977. I am sure that you will be pleased to know that the effective date of sick pay is now formally December 31, 1976. Thank you for writing again, and for your words of support and thanks. With best wishes," Jacob K. Javits (1904-1986)was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1947. He remained in that position until 1954 when hedefeated Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr. to become New York's Attorney General, the only Republican elected statewide that year. He later served four terms in the United States Senate (1957-1981).

He received a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1983. Normal mailing folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
