PRESIDENT RICHARD M. NIXON - TYPED LETTER SIGNED 12/15/1972 - HFSID 87608
Richard Nixon sends a typed letter of thanks for the gift package.
Typed Letter Signed: "RN" as President, 1p, 6¾x8¾. The White House, Washington, 1972 December 15. To Honorable and Mrs. Lewis L. Strauss, The Shoreham West, Washington, D. C. In full: "The wonderful gift package which arrived for Pat and me is indeed a welcome and tempting treat. We very much appreciate your usual thoughtfulness and join in thanking you for your kindness in sharing the joys of the season with us in such a special way. Pat and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with many blessings. Sincerely," 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. Fold crease not near signature. Fine condition.
