Lot 128: TLS as president signed "Jerry Ford," one page, 6.75 x 8.75, White House letterhead, March 2, 1976. Letter to then-Senator of Minnesota Al Quie, in full: "Many thanks for your February 25 letter. I greatly appreciate your congratulations on the outcome of the New Hampshire primary. I believe we are conducting an effective campaign, and I intend to continue my efforts through the coming primaries. When I was in Florida this past weekend, I sensed that our momentum is growing. I am confident that we are building pre-Convention strength which will ensure unified Republican support of my candidacy and a victory on November 2. Although the personal appearance of the candidate is essential, it is the effort of friends like you that adds crucial impetus to the campaign. I want to express my special gratitude to you for your support and assistance." In fine condition, with trivial creasing. Accompanied by a copy of Quie's original letter to Ford.
