"Call me when I can stand with you"

TLS as president, one page, 6.75 x 8.75, White House letterhead, January 18, 1969. Letter to longtime Oklahoma Congressman Tom Steed, in full: "Lady Bird and I were very moved by the eloquence of your tribute in Thursday's Record. Your words made us feel proud and grateful—and we thank you. May the years ahead be good to you." Johnson adds a handwritten postscript: "You are so good and dependable—always—'the best'—Call me when I can stand with you." In fine condition.
