DescriptionGerald Ford Autograph Letter Signed "Gerry Ford". One page, 6.5" x 8.5", November 28 . A letter to former Press Secretary, Ron Nessen, in regards to a piece written by Nessen that appeared in the Washington Post. In full:
"I am deeply grateful for the very thoughtful and generous op-ed piece in the Washington Post which also appeared nationally in a number of papers including the Houston Chronicle. Thanks so much. As you well know 1974 was a very tragic period in American history. I was fortunate to have a fine White House staff including you as my Press Secretary. We worked together and made many correct and courageous decisions. I thank you for your many kindnesses and support. I treasure your friendship".
Ron Nessen had written a piece titled, "It Shouldn't Have to Be This Way; Remember the President Who Helped Us Rise Above Rancor", which discussed the 2000 Presidential Election and the ballot scandal that ensued. Gerald Ford, of course, had seen his own share of political scandal when he assumed the presidency after Richard Nixon resigned on August 9, 1974.
