TLS signed “Ron,” one page, 8.5 x 11, State of California Governor's Office letterhead, May 20, 1969. Letter to celebrity psychic and author Jeane Dixon, giving permission to use a quote. In full: "I appreciate your interest in my comment on the value of education. Please feel free to use it in your forthcoming book and also in Open Line. Your note regarding the Horatio Alger Award has just crossed my desk. I treasure this honor very much and feel fortunate to have your good wishes to add impetus to the occasion. Nancy and I send regards to you and Jimmy." In fine condition. Accompanied by Dixon's retained carbon copy of her reply, thanking him for granting permission.

Reagan received the Horatio Alger Award in 1969. Jeane Dixon was rumored to have been one of few psychics consulted by Nancy Reagan during Reagan’s presidency. As evidenced by this letter, her personal relationship with both Reagans went back at least as far as 1969.
