Biden, then a new Senator, sends his autograph and invites his correspondent to meet in Washington

Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., 1942–.  46th President of the United States, 2021–.  Typed letter signed, Joe Biden, one page, 8” x 10¾”, on stationery of the United States Senate, Washington, D.C., September 3, 1974.

In only his second year as Delaware’s junior Senator, the gregarious Biden sends a signed photograph (not present) and solicits a meeting with his correspondent—a man not from Delaware, but Alabama.  In full:  “Thank you very much for your interest in obtaining an autographed picture of me.  I am happy to enclose it for you.  /  If you are in Washington in the future, please feel free to come by my office.  If time permits, I would like the opportunity to greet you personally.  /  Best wishes in the future.”

Biden was elected to the United States Senate in 1972 and took office January 3, 1973.  He served in the Senate for 36 years until he became the 47th Vice President of the United States, serving under President Barak Obama, in 2009.  He served eight years as Vice President and then was elected President in 2020.  He is the oldest person ever elected or to serve as President.

This is a nice letter.  Biden has signed in black fountain pen.  The letter is clean and bright and has never been folded.  There is a flattened diagonal bend at left, not affecting the signature; a crease in the upper right corner; and scattered handling marks.  Overall the piece is in fine condition.
