    Description

    Dwight D. Eisenhower on "Meet Mister Eisenhower" Good content, typed letter signed, "Dwight D. Eisenhower" as President, 7" x 10.25" on White House letterhead, Washington, March 21, 1955. An interesting letter written to Merriman Smith of the White House press office. He writes;"I am a little uncertain as to how I can, with propriety, 'thank' you for the advance copy you have sent me of 'Meet Mister Eisenhower.' I am both highly complimented and slightly embarrassed, as I am sure the object of any such critical appraisal is bound to be. Certainly I am without equivocation deeply appreciative of your kind and generous inscription. If the new incumbents in early '53 'you're' White House did not turn out to be quite the ogres you anticipated, I am glad. On my part I have found it a privilege to be associated with the members of the White House press corps. If the hero or the villain -- I know not which -- of your book can appropriately wish the author success, I most heartily do..." Very light horizontal folds, otherwise bright and clean with a bold signature. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
