Typed Letter Signed on the 1973 Energy Crisis

Richard Nixon (1969-1974). 37th President of the United States (1969-1974). A Typed Letter Signed "RN" on official "The White House Washington" letterhead, octavo, d. March 7, 1974, to Senator Norris Cotton of New Hampshire. In the aftermath of the OPEC oil embargo of 1973–1974, energy policy took center stage, with the Congress and the Aministration in heated domestic debate.

The letter reads in part: "I want to express my personal gratitude to you for your help in sustaining the veto of S. 2589, the Energy Emergency Act. Although well intentioned, this bill would have only succeeded in making the energy problem much more severe. Because the weaknesses of the bill were not widely understood, your vote was both foresighted and courageous...". Accompanied by the original envelope. Archivally framed. In fine condition. $950.
