Lot 135: TLS signed "Dick," one page, 8 x 10.5, Office of the Vice President letterhead, September 7, 1959. Letter to James C. Copley, in part: "Only the combination of long Senate sessions and a heavy travelling schedule since our return from the Soviet Union and Poland has kept me from getting this note off to you sooner to express my deep appreciation for your several contributions to the success of the trip. The complete and generous coverage by the Copley Press, both editorially and in the news columns, was most gratifying, I can assure you. It was a pleasure to have Rembert James aboard as a member of the travelling press, and the suggestions he passed along as a result of his previous experiences in the Soviet Union were most helpful. Herb, of course, did his usual superb job, and, because of the delicacy of situations which arose and conditions which were often adverse as far as the press corps were concerned, his skill, competence and counsel were even more valuable than would normally be the case." In fine condition, with punch and staple holes to top edge.
