NIXON'S QUAKER ROOTS
 
RICHARD NIXON.
Typed Letter Signed: "Richard Nixon", 1p, 7¼x10½. New York, 1980 June 2. To Ms. Sheila Scott, Philadelphia, Pa. In full: "It was most thoughtful of you to send me the original Quaker document. I do not have the facilities to check the genealogy, but I am quite confident that the William Milhous who signed the document was a relation on my mother's side. After all, as you know, there are relatively few Quakers and the name Milhous is not a common one. It occurred to me that, because of your interest in history, you might like to have a copy of my Memoirs for your personal library and I am sending one under separate cover." WILLIAM MILHOUS (1738-1826) was Nixon's great-great-great-grandfather. The wife of William's grandson, Nixon's great-grandmother Elizabeth Griffith Milhous, was the inspiration for Eliza Cope Birdwell in the novel Friendly Persuasion by Jessamyn West, Nixon's cousin. Nixon is one of two Quakers to be U.S. presidents; Herbert Hoover is the other. Lightly creased, not at signature. Fine condition.
