BILL CLINTON. Typed Letter signed: "Bill Clinton", 1p, 6¾x8¾. Washington, D.C., 1997 October 21. On White House stationery to Reverend Stan Easty, Elizabeth City, North Carolina. In full: "Thanks for your letter and the update on events in your life. I know you're excited about returning to your ancestral home and having the opportunity to preach there again. Congratulations to you and Reba on your recent wedding anniversary. I hope you enjoy many more wonderful years together. Your spiritual encouragement and prayerful support mean a great deal to me. Take care of yourself. May God continue to bless you. Sincerely" . Stan Easty, a retired Episcopal minister and well-known North Carolina mariner, had previously visited the White House with his wife Reba. Governor of Arkansas (1979-1981, 1983-1992), Bill Clinton was the first Democrat reelected President since FDR. He served from 1993-2001 and was the only elected U.S. President to be impeached. 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. Nor was his support based solely on personal charm. 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. Slightly soiled in upper right corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
