A one page, typed letter signed as President on White House letterhead, from February 20th, 1974, to Republican Congressman from Pennsylvania, Edwin D. Eshleman. “Dear Ed: The joint letter you signed recently urging me not to resign the Presidency has been received and I am grateful for this expression of sentiments by you and your colleagues in the House. It is my intention to remain on the job and perform my duties in the best fashion possible. As I endeavor to fulfill my responsibilities, it is reassuring to know that I have your support. With kindest regards, Sincerely, RN.” Nixon signs with his trademark circled initials, concluding a letter referencing the chaos that ensued after the Watergate scandal, written less than six months before his eventual resignation.   $895
