#145 - Richard Nixon Estimate: $1,500+

ALS signed “Dick,” one page, 7.25 x 10.5, personal letterhead, August 20, 1989. Letter to his friend, newspaper publisher Helen Copley, suggesting she speak with the former US Ambassador to the Vatican, Frank Shakespeare, in full, ''I just had a briefing from Frank Shakespeare who has just completed three years of service at the Vatican. He is going to spend a month vacating [sic] with his son and it occurred to me that you would find a meeting with him fascinating. He has axes to grind but can give you some extremely valuable insights into the Pope's foreign policy initiatives. With warm regards.'' In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope. Shakespeare served as Nixon's Director of the US Information Agency from 1969 to 1973, and then as ambassador to the Vatican from January 1987 to July 1989. Copley succeeded her husband James S. Copley as the head of the Union Tribune Publishing Company in San Diego upon his death in 1973. Additionally, she was also chairman and CEO of the Copley Press, a publisher and newspaper chain that consisted of 15 daily and 32 weekly publications. An uncommon handwritten letter from Nixon offering his networking help.
