    Richard M. Nixon Typed Letter Signed "RN" as President, one page on White House letterhead, 7" x 9", Washington, October 7, 1970. Nixon writes to Senator Jennings Randolph of West Virginia concerning his October 7 peace proposal to end the Vietnam War. He writes: "Dear Jennings: Tonight I delivered a fair and full proposal to cease the hostilities in Indochina. It is my belief that this initiative, which will be laid on the bargaining table in Paris, represents a forthright and comprehensive effort by the United States to bring peace to a troubled area of our world. I want to take this opportunity to share with you the full text of the address. It is my hope that I may rely on your continued support in our quest for peace. With my best wishes..."

    Nixon's October 7 proposal for a cease fire in Vietnam, "an Indochina Peace Conference" that would include also Laos and Cambodia, a withdrawal of U.S. troops, and an appeal for a final political settlement was met with a curt rebuff by the Communist delegation in Paris the following Day. The delegation responded in the negative, characterizing the proposal as "a maneuver to deceive world opinion." Two miniscule staple holes at top, else extremely clean and in very fine condition. Housed in a handsome blue leather slipcase with gilt titled ribbed spine and gilt eagle on cover with blue cloth interior.
