    Gerald Ford Scarce Autograph Letter Signed "Jerry Ford", one page, 6" x 9", December 24, 1983, on his personal gilt-embossed stationary, addressed to Carmine Porcelli, director of licensing for Oscar De La Renta. He writes: "Because Betty is doing a lot of last minute shopping for the Family she asked me to write with our appreciation for your Christmastime thoughtfulness. The beautiful Republican tree trimmings are already displayed. We thank you so much. Betty and I hope you have a very Happy Holiday Season". In gold ink, writing is a touch light in areas, otherwise fine. Together with a second TLS "Gerald R. Ford", one page, 6" x 9", October 14, 1994, also to Carmine Porcelli, thanking him for having sent a tie from his new collection. Very fine.
