TLS signed “RN,” one page, 7.25 x 10.5, personal letterhead, August 13, 1976. Letter to talent agent Irving Paul Lazar, thanking him for kind wishes after Pat Nixon's first stroke. In part: "This is just a note to tell you how deeply touched Mrs. Nixon and I were by your message of concern with regard to her illness. She is home now, and slowly but surely making splendid progress toward full recovery. Excellent medical attention, plus her courage and determination, have contributed greatly to the progress she has made. But I am confident that your message, and the others she has received, as well as the prayers of people all over the world, have helped enormously in enabling her to come through this difficult crisis even better and more rapidly than the doctors thought would be possible when she entered the hospital." Nixon writes the salutation in his own hand, "Dear Irving." In fine condition.
