Estimate: $20,000.00 +
Sold Price: $22,689.45 (includes buyer's premium)


ALS as president, one page, 6.75 x 8.75, White House letterhead, February 10, 2006. Letter to Ronald Wade, in full: "The Oval Office is a shrine to Democracy. It reminds me that the office of the President is larger than the occupant of the office. On the walls are paintings of our state of Texas. As well, George Washington and Abe Lincoln are honored." In very fine condition. Accompanied by the large original White House mailing envelope. Ronald Wade was a floor leader at the 1988 Republican National Convention and was later appointed by George H. W. Bush to his Presidential Inaugural Committee. He served as the regional director for Bush's campaign races in 1980, 1988, and 1992. The same day he wrote this letter, George W. Bush spoke to the House Republican Conference in Cambridge, Maryland, and addressed issues related to job growth, home ownership, and the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, which he signed into law two days prior. George W. Bush takes a place among the most elusive modern presidents in handwritten White House letters, with this example one of only a few that have ever come to market. A quintessential presidential offering in both its rarity and bold patriotic content.
