Two-page typed letter, dated April 17, 1970, signed by Gerald Ford, 38th
President of the United States. The letter, written on Congressional letterhead (Ford was Minority Leader of the House of Representatives at the time), is addressed to “Mr. Jack F. Dobbs,” the principal of Riley Elementary School in Lincoln, Nebraska, in response to the question “What my country means to me.” Ford’s answer is not only eloquent and moving, but one that is especially timely given our recent state of democracy. It is signed “Gerald Ford” in blue ink, with the signature grading “10.” Each page of the letter (8 x 10.5 inches) displays two horizontal folds and staple holes in the upper right corner. In Excellent to Mint condition. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Pre certified by Steve Grad and Brian Sobrero/Beckett Authentication. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
