RICHARD NIXON. Typed Letter Signed: "RN" as President, 1p, 7x10½. The White House, Washington, 1969 November 5. To Senator Norris Cotton of New Hampshire. In full: "On this first anniversary of our campaign victory last year, I am reminded once again of how much your active and very effective participation meant to our achievement of that victory. The time and effort you devoted, the encouragement you gave, the personal commitment you made, all contributed greatly to our success in a difficult, exciting and closely contested campaign. Having the opportunity to lead America at this critical point in our nation's history is a great privilege. I am deeply grateful not only for your campaign efforts, but also for the faith that those efforts represented. I shall do everything I possibly can in the months and years ahead to merit that faith, and to make these years a time of which America as a nation, and we as Americans, can be truly proud. With my best wishes, Sincerely." The content indicates this was most likely a form letter. This one, however, was personally signed by President Nixon with his initials, which he reserved for friends. NORRIS COTTON (1900-1989) was Republican Senator from New Hampshire from 1954-1974. Both Cotton and Nixon had begun their terms in the House of Representatives in 1947. Cotton served in the House until 1954, when he entered the U.S. Senate. Nixon became a U.S. Senator in 1950. From 1953-1961, Vice President Nixon was President of the Senate. In the November 5, 1968, election, Nixon defeated incumbent Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey (Democrat) and Alabama Governor George C. Wallace (American Independent) 301-191-46 electoral votes. Nixon won with only 43.4% of the popular vote to Humphrey's 42.7%. Lightly creased with folds, not at signature. Slightly soiled at lower right blank edge. Date stamp on verso (no show through). Fine condition.
