Sam Rayburn

Samuel Taliaferro Rayburn, 1882-1961.  Speaker of the United States House of Representatives.  Typed Letter Signed, one page, 7” x 9”, January 6, 1961, on stationery of the The Speaker’s Rooms, House of Representatives U.S., Washington, D.C. 

Rayburn, a powerful Democrat from Bonham, Texas, known as “Mr. Democrat” or “Mr. Sam,” was the longest-serving Speaker of the House of Representatives.  

The letter has one normal mailing fold but is otherwise absolutely pristine.  Rayburn has boldly signed it in blue fountain pen.  The letter is triple matted in dark brown suede and gold along with a portrait of Rayburn and an engraved brass identification plate.  It is framed in a gilt wood frame.
