Lot 107: Souvenir typescript of Nixon's resignation announcement on August 8, 1974, four pages, 8.5 x 11, signed at the top of the first page in blue felt tip. In part: "To continue to fight through the months ahead for my personal vindication would almost totally absorb the time and attention of both the President and the Congress in a period when our entire focus should be on the great issues of peace abroad and prosperity without inflation at home. Therefore, I shall resign the Presidency effective at noon tomorrow. Vice President Ford will be sworn in as President at that hour in this office." In fine condition, with a light bend to the top.
