“The first President I met was Dwight Eisenhower”
Description                           Estimate: $800+          

ALS, one page both sides, 6.25 x 4.5, personal letterhead, September 23, 1979. Letter to Ron Wade, in full: "The first President I met was Dwight Eisenhower. I met him with my father then a U.S. Senator from Conn—a simple hand shake was all. The Congress has usurped some of the powers of the presidency or at least cut into them—but that can be reversed. Weak Presidents have helped this trend." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original transmittal envelope. Bush had announced his presidential candidacy in May, and at the RNC in 1980 was named the candidate for vice president. The Reagan-Bush ticket handily defeated the incumbent President Carter, who Bush alludes to with his jab in the final sentence of this letter. The recipient, Ron Wade, was a floor leader at the 1988 Republican National Convention and was later appointed by Bush to his Presidential Inaugural Committee. He served as the regional director for Bush's campaign races in 1980, 1988, and 1992.
