Richard Milhous Nixon, 1913-1994.  37th President of the United States.  Autograph Letter Signed, RN, one page, 7¼ x 10½", on engraved personal stationery, San Clemente, California, July 3, 1978.

Nixon sends his condolences to a friend and supporter, William W. Stover, on the death of Stover's mother.  In full:  “Because your mother was such a lovely lady I know how deeply you must feel her loss.  /  You can take great comfort in the fact that she was justifiably very proud of you and that you did so much to make her life a very happy one.  /  Words are inadequate to be of much help at such a time but please know that Pat and I share your grief and express our deepest sympathy.

Stover, with whom Nixon kept in regular contact, was a 1955 graduate of Stanford University Law School.  He also served as the chief of staff for California Senator George L. Murphy.

Nixon is rare in autograph letters signed.  He has penned this one in black and has signed with his initials, which is typical of much of his correspondence.  The letter has two small reciprocal stains, which are not particularly obtrusive, at the top fold.  It is in fine condition.
