Former president thanks a friend for her good wishes for his birthday.
Typed Letter Signed: "RN", 1p, 7x10¼. On personal letter head New York City, 1986 February 3. To Helen Montgomery. In full: "You were most thoughtful to remember me on my birthday. I must confess that I have always thought that 73 was a very advanced age, but after seeing how remarkably sharp and fit Time's Man of the Year, 82 year old Deng Xiaoping, was when I spent two hours with him in Peking last fall, I have renewed hope that there are still some good years ahead! Pat joins me in sending our very best wishes for the New Year. Sincerely," Signed by President Nixon with his initials, which he reserved for friends. Fold creases not at signature. Fine condition. With original personal envelope, 7¼x3¾, addressed to Montgomery with New York, NY Cancellation 1986 February 4. Lightly soiled, else fine. RICHARD MILHOUS NIXON (1913-1994) was elected 37th President of the United States in 1968 after representing California in the U.S. House of Representatives (1947-1951) and U.S. Senate (1951-1953) and serving two terms as Dwight D. Eisenhower's Vice President (1953-1961). He lost (1960), then won, extremely close Presidential elections (facing John F. Kennedy and Hubert Humphrey, respectively), then won re-election by a landslide against George McGovern in 1972. Nixon's re-election triumph rapidly turned sour, however, as the burgeoning Watergate scandal claimed more and more of his key aides and finally compelled his own resignation in August 1974. A pragmatic conservative who gained an early reputation as an anti-communist but achieved diplomatic triumphs in relations with China and the Soviet Union, Nixon's prolific writing in his retirement years helped repair his reputation and hasten his re-emergence as an elder statesman.
