    Richard Nixon Autograph Letter Signed as Vice President. One page, 6.5" x 9.5", on "Key Biscayne hotel and villas" letterhead, Miami, Florida, November 11, 1966. Handwritten letter to "Eugenie" offering his and Pat Nixon's condolences on the death of her husband, and personal memories of "Uncle Lou."

    Nixon's intimate letter reads, in part: "As Pat and I begin a few days vacation after a strenuous campaign I want you to know our thoughts are with you during this sad period. 'Uncle Lou' was one of the finest men it was our privilege to know during our years in public life... we shall cherish the memories of those few moments we were privileged to chat with him about everything from politics to far more important (and enjoyable) activities - like fishing for example! I have never learned to fish - but Lou's genius was that through his contagious enthusiasm he made everyone who knew him - a great fisherman at least in his dreams!" Boldly penned in blue ink; signed "Dick." Faint paper clip stain at upper left, else fine.
