PRESIDENT WILLIAM J. "BILL" CLINTON
The 42nd U.S. President pens this letter to a friend while temporarily out of office, to express him his gratitude for his visit and friendship, signed in black ink
Autograph Letter Signed: "Bill" in black ink. One page, 7¼x10. Place: Little Rock, Arkansas. Date: September 15 (undated, but postmarked September 15, 1981). Written on personal letterhead to Ebbie Boone. In full:" Dear Ebbie Boone I enjoyed our visit and appreciate, as always, your friendship and support. Please keep your ear to the ground and keep in touch. Best" in black ink. Accompanied by original mailing envelope addressed in Clinton's hand. Bill Clinton, born William Jefferson Blythe III in Hope, Arkansas in 1946, was Governor of Arkansas (1979-1981, 1983-1992) and the first Democrat reelected President since FDR. The only elected U.S. President to be impeached (Andrew Johnson was impeached, but he had not been elected to the office), on February 12, 1999, President Clinton was acquitted on both articles of impeachment brought against him: charges of perjury and obstruction of justice. Clinton's popularity stood at 67% at the end of his trial, however. Obviously, many Americans were willing to overlook his personal failings in an era of peace and prosperity. His accomplishments in office included a waiting period for gun purchases (the Brady Law), the Family and Medical Leave Act, the North American Free Trade Agreement, welfare reform and balancing of the federal budget. Clinton had previously co-written (with Al Gore) Putting People First (1992), and he would publish his successful autobiography, My Life, in 2004. As of 2015, William “Bill” Clinton has appeared 52 times in the cover of TIME Magazine since 1992, sharing the cover with former U.S. President George W. Bush in the July 23rd edition. This letter shows Clinton out of office temporarily, but keeping active the network of local friends and supporters who would put him back in the Governor's office the following year. Multiple mailing folds. Lightly toned around edges. Bottom edge frayed. Otherwise, fine condition. Otherwise, fine condition.
