Richard Nixon sends a typed letter of thanks for the support.
Typed Letter Signed: "RN" as President, 1p, 6¾x8¼. The White House, Washington, 1969 November 15. The 37th President, who would end U.S. involvement in the Vietnam war, writes to Honorable Spruille Braden, New York. In full: "Your support for our efforts to win a just peace in Vietnam is deeply heartening and I want you to know how pleased I was to have your encouraging comments. I hope our actions to secure peace abroad and a better life for our people at home will continue to merit your confidence." A month earlier, on October 15, 1969, rallies were held across the nation on Vietnam Moratorium Day. Although a number of political figures spoke at these rallies, Nixon remained silent, later saying that he would "under no circumstances whatsoever" be swayed by the protests. Nixon and his Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, had entered into peace talks in Paris with North Vietnam, South Vietnam and the Viet Cong in January of 1969. Although Nixon and Kissinger also engaged in secret negotiations, it would not be until March 29, 1973 that the last American forces left Vietnam. SPRUILLE BRADEN was a former Assistant Secretary of State and U.S. Ambassador to Chile (1939), Cuba (1942-1945) and Argentina (1945). During his tenure in Argentina, Braden openly opposed Juan Peron, whom he called a Fascist, and it is likely that he felt just as strongly against Communism. Fine condition..
