LYNDON B. JOHNSON
He signs a typed letter to a newspaper columnist, discussing the birth of his first grandchild: "There is nothing more cuddly for a Johnson ranch ... than a granddaughter."
Typed Letter Signed: "Lyndon B. Johnson" as 36th U.S. President, 1 page, 6¾x9. The White House, Washington, 1968 October 28. To Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Lyons, New York Post. In full: "Mrs. Johnson and I have found there is nothing more cuddly for a Johnson ranch--or probably even a Lyons Den--than a granddaughter. Thanks for your congratulations. It made the event even more memorable." Three days before this letter was written (October 25, 1968), Johnson's eldest daughter Lynda Bird Robb gave birth to Lucinda Desha Robb, LBJ's first granddaughter. LEONARD LYONS, a columnist for the "Post", called his column "The Lyon's Den". As evidenced by this letter, he wrote to the President to express his congratulations. LBJ's first grandchild, Patrick Lyndon Nugent, the son of his younger daughter, Luci, had been born in 1967. On November 17, 1934, 26-year-old Lyndon Baines Johnson, secretary to Congressman Richard Kleberg, had married 21-year-old Claudia Alta (Lady Bird) Taylor in San Antonio, Texas. They had two daughters. Lynda Bird Johnson, born in 1944, was married in the White House in 1967 to Charles S. Robb, who was later elected Governor of Virginia (1982-1986) and U.S. Senator (1989-2001). Luci Baines Johnson, born in 1947, married Patrick J. Nugent in 1966 (divorced in 1979) and Ian J. Turpin in 1984. Authentically signed Presidential letters of Johnson are scarce. Family content letters are always desirable. Fine condition.
