Description

"Over the next four years I shall do everything I possibly can to make the kind of record which all Americans, regardless of party, can look back on with pride as we celebrate America's 200th Birthday in 1976"

TLS as president, signed “RN,” one page, 6.75 x 8.75, White House letterhead, December 4, 1972. Letter to the Hon. George Murphy, in part: "I want you to know how very much I appreciated your telegram of congratulations on the occasion of our election victory on November 7. Over the next four years I shall do everything I possibly can to make the kind of record which all Americans, regardless of party, can look back on with pride as we celebrate America's 200th Birthday in 1976." In fine condition, with a rusty paperclip impression to the top edge. An interesting and seemingly sincere patriotic sentiment from the president, but one which ultimately went unfulfilled—by the time of America's bicentennial celebration, Nixon had been forced to resign in disgrace and Gerald Ford was serving as president.
