ABOUT CHIEF JUSTICE EARL WARREN: "THE COMMISSION REPORT, WHICH I STILL STAND BY, AND WHICH HAS WITHSTOOD ATTACK FROM ALL SIDES, IS A TRIBUTE TO HIS LEGAL ABILITY, HS INTEGRITY, AND HIS LEADERSHIP."
 
GERALD R. FORD.
Typed Letter Signed: "Jerry Ford", 1p, 7¼x10½. No place, 1977 September 26. To Jack Harrison Pollack, El Dorado Towers, New York, New York. In full: "In response to your letter of September 12 I would say this concerning Chief Justice Earl Warren. He did a superb job as Chairman of the Warren Commission. The outstanding staff was primarily his handiwork. He was a firm but fair presiding officer in handling the numerous and diverse witnesses. The unanimity of the Commission was achieved through his leadership. The Commission Report, which I still stand by, and which has withstood attack from all sides, is a tribute to his legal ability, his integrity, and his leadership. We did not fly together to Dallas for the Ruby interview. Inasmuch as I am writing a book I will be amplifying my comments vis-a-vis Chief Justice Warren in that work. He was a good friend and we had many enjoyable and interesting experiences which I think I'd better save. Best of luck on what should be a fine book." EARL WARREN (1891-1974) served as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court from 1953-1969. On November 29, 1963, President Johnson appointed a seven-man commission (including then-Congressman Ford), chaired by Chief Justice Earl Warren, to investigate the assassination of President Kennedy one week earlier. This letter reaffirms Ford's position that, according to the Commission Report released on September 28, 1964, "on the basis of the evidence before the Commission it concludes that Oswald acted alone." Ford also mentions interviewing Jack Ruby who killed Oswald two days after the Kennedy assassination. Ruby had insisted he be flown to Washington, D.C. for the interview but, as this letter says, the interview was held in Dallas. On Ford's personal stationery with gilt presidential seal at top. Letters by a U.S. President about a Chief Justice are highly desirable. Slightly creased at seal, else fine condition.
