Description

The first-term governor: "I may get licked on some bills but I won't back down or change"

ALS signed “Ronnie,” one page, 4.75 x 8.25, [annotated May 2, 1967]. Letter to Earl B. Dunckel, in full: "I'm a little late in answering but the pace is getting heavy as we come down the legislative stretch. A pipeline to the other side informs us the tone where I'm concerned is to paint me as 'backing down.' Well t'ain't so! I may get licked on some bills but I won't back down or change. I do appreciate those columns and the sum up on Mr. Big. Actually I'm in great accord with the Widner columns. It's the mood we served in the campaign. In an earlier day it would have led to a 'reform' ticket." In very fine condition.
