1973 Draft letter to Pres. Nixon - Sept.

John and Roberta were happy to do their part to help President Richard Nixon in the fall of 1973 when Vice-President, Spiro Agnew, was charged with tax evasion and bribery during his tenure as governor of Maryland.  Agnew resigned as VP on October 10, 1973, resulting in the nomination of Gerald Ford, then House Minority Leader.  Transcription follows.

Dear President Nixon,

I am sorry you are having problems with your Vice President.  I am available for the job if you ever need me.

On behalf of the Republic Party, I accept the nomination with great pride.

Also do you have a high paying job for my sister Roberta?

(from John & Roberta) Sept. 1973
