Lot 94: TLS as president signed "RN," one page, 6.75 x 8.75, White House letterhead, January 24, 1973. Letter to Congressman Charles Wilson 'Bill' Young, in full: "Now that we have finally achieved peace with honor in Vietnam, I particularly want you to know how much I have appreciated the support you have given during these difficult years to the policies that made that achievement possible. Without those in the Congress who stood steadfastly as you did, we could not have won the settlement that I announced last night. I know how great the pressures have been. I know the sort of attacks to which you have been subjected, as a result of following your conscience. But I also am confident that history will prove you to have been right, and that in the years to come you can look back with pride on a stern test nobly met." In fine condition, with a couple trivial bends.
