    Nixon Announces His Decision to Release Transcripts of White House Conversations

    [Watergate]. Richard Nixon Signed Press Release Statement. Seven pages, 8.5" x 14.5", April 29, 1974. Signed in blue ink at the top of the first page. Nixon addresses the American people regarding the ongoing Watergate investigation and announces his decision to make public transcripts of 46 White House conversations related to Watergate. The lengthy speech, which had a running time of thirty-six minutes, concludes: "As for myself, I intend to go forward, to the best of my ability with the work that you elected me to do. I shall do so in a spirit perhaps best summed up a century ago by another President", Nixon finishes by quoting Abraham Lincoln: "I do the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end." Nixon became the first President to resign from office three months after this speech was given. Slight discoloration at edges from age, staple holes at top left corners.
