    Richard M. Nixon: "Order of the Hound's Tooth". On February 20, 1953, one month after his inauguration as Vice President, Richard Nixon wrote this TLS to James Murray of Time Magazine. "At long last I am sending you your membership card in the 'Order of the Hound's Tooth', and I am sending your emblem under separate cover." He then makes reference to a story about the group and says there was a meeting of the club: "...the day after the inauguration... with an attendance of about twenty..." We can find no reference to the club which was likely a humorous diversion of limited duration. The letter is sold together with a telegram from Nixon to Murray apologizing for the delay in forward the Hound's Tooth Club emblem and another telegram, probably from Murray, to another journalist regarding coverage of Nixon's train trip by Time and Life Magazines.
