Thelma Catherine "Pat" Ryan Nixon, 1912-1993.  First Lady of the United States, 1969-1974.  Autograph Letter Signed, Pat, one page, octavo, on engraved stationery of La Casa Pacifica, [San Clemente, California], [no date].  With accompanying envelope addressed by Mrs. Nixon.

Mrs. Nixon thanks long-time Nixon friend and supporter William W. Stover for a Christmas tree decoration.  In full:  “We are enormously grateful for your thoughts of us at Christmas.  The exquisite tree ornament is bringing us joy this year — and promises to repeat in the years ahead!  /  With appreciation for your thoughtfulness and Happy New Year wishes,  /  Devotedly,  /  Pat

Mrs. Nixon is rare in autograph letters signed.  In The First Ladies of the United States:  An Historical Look at Each and Their Autograph Materials 1789-1989, Walter Ostromecki, Jr., noted that she "is extremely scarce in holograph material" and that he knew of only "a very few holograph letters."

This beautiful letter has never been on the market before.  Mrs. Nixon has written it in blue fountain pen.  It is in very fine condition and would be extra fine were it not for the one normal horizontal fold.  The accompanying envelope is addressed in Mrs. Nixons hand but was never mailed.  It is in very fine condition as well.
