Handwritten dedication draft in honor of Hollywood producer Jerry Weintraub
Description                           Estimate: $1,000+          

Unsigned handwritten draft of a letter by Vice President Bush, three pages, 7.25 x 10.5, Stouffer’s Inn on the Square letterhead, no date but circa March/April 1984. In full: “As you gather to honor our dear friend Jerry Weintraub I will be in St. Louis and Barbara will be in—. We wish we were there with you—for a lot of reasons. One—the invitation was fancy. I never saw so many wonderful names on one invitation. I am a bit of Walter Middy—name dropping is a hobby—and I know if I were there I’d be in hog heaven. Secondly—I have great respect for the Variety Club. Pres. Reagan and I have tried to emphasize the importance of the ‘volunteer section’—Well if there ever was a role model for showing what men & women of good will do to help others it’s the Variety Club—(what V. Club does), (Patty leave large space—6 lines), And the Thirdly there’s Jerry himself. The guy from New York who’s done so much. Who’s made it big and helped a lot of people along the way. He’s a generous guy and he’s kind. He doesn’t turn his back on his friends—as a guy who’s proud to be his friend I know that for sure. And something else—I’ve always felt Jerry wherever he was going he never forgot where he came from. His love for his family shines through—Last year at Blue Heaven Jane & Jerry had a party for Barbara & me—It had everything, but maybe the thing I’ll remember most was the look of pride on Jerry’s face—when Jerry introduced his Dad & Mom to his friends out there. Family love shone through. And as to Jane & Jerry we send our sincere congratulations as the Variety Club ‘gives you a dinner,’ We wish we were with you. We really, truly do.” In fine condition, with staple holes to the top left corner. Weintraub was an American talent agent, concert promoter, film producer and actor whose television films won him three Emmys. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
