Lot 91: TLS as president signed "Ron," one page, 7 x 10.5, White House letterhead, June 9, 1981. Letter to Charles J. Broska of the Shoreline Retirement Association. In part: "I don't know what to say about Jack Anderson. Frankly, he comes out with what he claims is sure fire material but too many times I know from the position I'm now in, it is complete fiction. I guess there's no way of stopping him. I appreciated your tax proposal about the 10% and trying the next two years to come to some level of economic achievement…we're convinced that the business community would not have the confidence in the Congress to carry through on those other two increases that are necessary if this tax bill is to be what we want it to be and that is an incentive; a program to increase investment and productivity." In fine condition. Jack Anderson was an investigative reporter who became the scourge of the Reagan administration five years later when he broke the the Iran–Contra story.
