    Description

    George H.W. Bush Autograph Note Signed "George" as President. One page, 6.5" x 4.25" (sight), October 7, 1991. Addressed to Senator Daniel Patrick "Pat" Moynihan, written in black felt tip pen, in full: "Pat - a brilliant opening para. to your piece Big Red Lie. Thanks for sharing." Note is matted to an overall size of 8.75" x 7", with transmittal envelope mounted on verso.

    The opening paragraph of Moynihan's story which Bush admired reads: "In as fine an address as any American statesman will ever give, George Bush called for the United Nations to undo one of the most sordid acts of the age of totalitarianism: the 1975 resolution declaring Zionism to be a form of racism. In effect, it was a resolution to deny the state of Israel the right to exist."

    Condition: Minor wear and mounting remnants on matt on verso, but otherwise very good 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.
