#54 - Richard Nixon Typed Letter Signed Estimate: $2,500+

Seeking “a full generation of peace," President Nixon embarks on his "mission to Peking"

TLS as president signed “RN,” one page, 6.75 x 9, White House letterhead, February 14, 1972. Letter to California Congressman Del Clawson, in full: "It was heartening to receive your strong expression of support for my January 25 Indochina peace initiatives contained in a letter of January 26, 1972, signed by a bi-partisan majority of the House of Representatives. I am confident history will record that support such as yours during these difficult times contributed significantly to our mutually shared goal—a full generation of peace. As I embark on my mission to Peking, I want you to know how much I deeply appreciate your thoughts." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope. Nixon's seven-day official visit to the People's Republic of China in late February 1972 marked the first time a U.S. president had visited the PRC. His arrival in Beijing ended 25 years of no communication or diplomatic ties between the two countries and was the key step in normalizing relations between the U.S. and China. A desirable letter referencing two of the most important foreign policies of his administration, Vietnam and China
