Hubert H. Humphrey sends a typed letter of thanks for the jar of candy.
Typed Letter Signed: "Hubert H Humphrey" as U.S. Senator from Minnesota, 1p, 8x10½. Washington, D.C., 1977 October 12. On United States Senate letterhead to Miss Toni Currin, Dillon, South Carolina. In full: "Just a short note to thank you so very much for your thoughtfulness. I truly enjoyed the jar of candy that you sent to me at my Waverly home. Not only was the candy delicious, but the bottle was fascinating. My best to you. Sincerely". Written just three months before his death on January 13, 1978 at his home in Waverly, Minnesota. Hubert Horatio Humphrey (1911-1978) was Mayor of Minneapolis (1945-1948), U.S. Senator from Minnesota (1949-1964, 1971-1978; Senate Democratic Whip, 1961-1964) and Lyndon B. Johnson's Vice President (1965-1969). Well-known for his long and witty speeches on the Senate floor, he was known as "The Happy Warrior". Humphrey, who ran unsuccessfully for President against Nixon in 1968, returned to the Senate in 1971. The post of Deputy President Pro Tempore of the Senate was created for him. Humphrey held it from January 5, 1977 until his death. His wife, Muriel, was appointed by the Governor of Minnesota to the U.S. Senate on January 25, 1978 to fill the vacancy caused by his death, becoming the only Vice President's wife to become a U.S. Senator. She served until a successor was elected in November. Slightly creased with fold, not at signature. Fine condition.
