In full: “Dear Proctor, This is just a note to thank for the very gracious comments you made in your letter of July 21.I cannot qualify as an expert on economic issues, but the letter you wrote to President Yeltsin last September made a great deal of sense to me. A tribute to your Bohemian Grove speech on July 25, 1984 is that it reads as well today as it did then. We sometimes forget that the nation that produced Stalin in the 20th century gave the world Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Pushkin and Tchayskovsky in the 19th century. Your are one of the view who recognized early on how much the Americans and Russians have in common. To supplement your outstanding photographic coverage of the former Soviet Union, I am sending you, under separate cover, an inscribed copy of my book, Seize the Moment, for your personal library. With warm regards, sincerely,” Two mailing folds, otherwise mint condition.

In 1963 the Nixon family moved to New York City, where Nixon became a senior partner in the leading law firm Nixon, Mudge, Rose, Guthrie & Alexander. Nixon had pledged, when announcing his California campaign, not to run for president in 1964. Even if he had not, he believed it would be difficult to defeat Kennedy, or after his assassination, Lyndon Johnson. In 1964, he supported Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater for the Republican nomination for president and Nixon campaigned for him loyally. In 1968 he ran again for the presidency and was elected when he defeated Hubert Humphrey. Excellent content letter.
