    President Nixon writes to a Congressman about the Vietnam War

    Richard Nixon Typed Letter Signed "RN", one page, 6.75" x 8.75", Washington, D.C., May 11, 1972, to Roger H. Zion, an Indiana Republican who served in the House of Representatives. During the 1968 election campaign Nixon had promised to end the war in Vietnam. When this did not happen, he faced criticism. In this letter typed on White House embossed stationary, Nixon expresses his thanks for Zion's support: "It was most encouraging to learn of your forceful expression of support for the peace proposals I presented to the Nation this past Monday evening. Acceptance of these proposals, I believe, will bring an end to the killing, a return of our prisoners of war, a withdrawal of all forces with honor, and continued progress toward peace for all countries that have suffered for so long in this conflict . . ." Nixon greatly reduced the number of soldiers in Vietnam. He was reelected after promising peace. Very fine.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
