TLS signed “Ron,” one page, 7 x 10.5, White House letterhead, May 22, 1986. Reagan writes to Chet Sampson in Hollywood. In part: “Thanks for the jam and for all the Gipp mementoes and for those letters of my mother’s…. You wondered about Gipp and whether this might be a forgotten part of my past. Quite the contrary.

Curiously enough, at political rallies during my last campaign, there would always be signs out in the crowd referring to me as ‘The Gipper.’ And, believe me, I like that very much….” In fine condition.
