    Herbert Hoover Typed Manuscript with Handwritten Annotations. Three pages, 8.5" x 11", August 9, 1963, n.p., entitled "Statement by Mr. Herbert Hoover on his eighty-ninth birthday - August 10, 1963." One page contains Hoover's penciled annotations, while the remaining two pages contain the corrected text. Fine.

    More Information:

    In this statement issued, the former president offers thanks for well-wishers during his recent illness. He further states that because of that illness, he has not "been able to keep abreast of national and international events . . . and so this year I shall not comment on them." He also states that he has confidence "in the American system . . . and of free enterprise and personal liberty." Page two of the corrected manuscript provides a health summary of the aged statesman.
