    William Jefferson Clinton Autograph Letter Signed. One page, 8.5" x 11", on his personal letterhead, n.p. [Fayetteville AR], August 24 [1976]. While studying at Yale and still a newlywed, Bill Clinton sent this brief letter to Lee Jones of the Arkansas Daily Citizen newspaper. It reads in full: "Lee - Thanks for the article. I have done what I could. Hope to see you again soon; I really enjoyed lunch. Best, Bill." Although we do not know the article to which the letter refers, it is possible it had something to do with Jimmy Carter's presidential campaign in Arkansas, which Clinton was then directing. The following year, Clinton would become the Attorney General for the state.

    Letter is faintly age toned and shows minor foxing at lower third. It is accompanied by the toned original transmittal envelope, also accomplished in Bill Clinton's hand. Clinton handwritten letters are quite rare and desirable - this one being in fine condition.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
