    Description

    Richard Nixon Items from Clifton Webb Estate. Clifton Webb was a huge Richard Nixon supporter, as evidenced by this lot. Included is a letter on Nixon's personal stationery, dated November 8, 1961, that thanks Webb "for all that you did for our cause...No candidate for the Presidency could have had a more dedicated and loyal group of supporters. Pat joins me in sending our best wishes." The letter is signed "Dick Nixon" in black ink, with the original envelope included. Also in the lot are two unsigned, undated Christmas cards, one printed "Pat and Dick Nixon" and the other "The Richard Nixon Family." Finally, there's a letter typed on "Office of Dwight D. Eisenhower" stationery, dated September 30, 1952, thanking Webb for "your deep faith in Richard Nixon," This apparently followed Nixon's famous "Checkers" speech, and Ike insists that his "personal confidence" in Nixon "was never shaken." A very desirable lot in overall great condition. From the Clifton Webb Archive. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
