Lot 114: TLS as president signed "Jerry Ford," one page, 7 x 10.5, White House letterhead, June 4, 1976. Letter to C. W. Bill Young, in part: "In this year, 1976, we are opening a new chapter of American history and entering our third century as a Nation. We have behind us a record of accomplishment and dedication to the goals of our Founding Fathers. This has been achieved, in large part, through the service of devoted public servants, both past and present. It is an heritage we must protect and cherish. I wish to salute you, Bill, as one who serves your constituency and your Nation with a full comprehension of these responsibilities." In fine condition, with trivial creasing to top edge. Young was a Floridian politician who served in the US House of Representatives from 1971 to 2013; he endorsed President Ford in the 1976 Republican presidential primary over California Governor Ronald Reagan.
