RICHARD NIXON.
Typed Letter Signed: "Richard Nixon" as Eisenhower's Vice President, 1p, 7x9. Washington, 1955 November 30. On letterhead of the Office of the Vice President to Mr. and Mrs. Wallace McTammany, West Palm Beach, Florida. In full: "This is just a note to thank you for your telegram welcoming us to Florida. Both Mrs. Nixon and I greatly appreciated your thoughtfulness, and we are sorry we did not have a chance to see you. My parents, I know, will be pleased when I tell them we heard from you. Mrs. Nixon joins me in sending our best wishes to you." Lightly creased, not at signature. Overall, fine condition. With original Office of the Vice President envelope bearing Nixon's printed frank as Vice President. Slightly yellowed, else fine condition. As this letter was to friends and was not official business, Vice President Nixon, in a show of honesty and integrity, did not allow this letter to pass free though the mail; two three-cent NATO stamps were affixed to the envelope, which was sent by airmail. The envelope bears a clear Washington, D.C. postmark of December 1, 1955, the day on which Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama bus, precipitating the Civil Rights movement and the rise to national prominence of Martin Luther King, Jr., who led the March on Washington eight years later. Nixon's parents, FRANCIS ANTHONY NIXON (1878-1956) and HANNAH MILHOUS NIXON (1885-1967), witnessed their son's election as Vice President. Two items..
