    George H. W. Bush Typed Letter Signed Twice as Vice President. One page, 7" x 9" on his official letterhead with an extensive autograph postscript signed, Washington, July 21, 1987 to William G. Hyland, Editor of Foreign Affairs. He writes, in most part, "I have pulled 'Mortal Rivals' out of its dust-gathering shelf in the Executive Office Building, and it is going off to Maine with me where I hope I will get to digest some, if not all of it. The letter you received dated June 22 was our basic form, and obviously the Hyland name, so respected and revered by me, meant less to the computer..." Below his signature, he adds in his own hand, "P.S. Dictated before Maine - Now 'Rivals' is partially digested after first looking to Bush in the back of the book. OK on that Thanks..." Very fine condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
