Description: First Lady Nancy Reagan (1921-2016) wrote and signed this lighthearted letter to an old friend while she was on the campaign trail in 1979 with her husband, soon-to-be President Ronald Reagan. Reagan writes to her friend whom she affectionately calls “Eyore” about occasionally seeing “Smith-ites on the campaign trail”. (Reagan and her correspondent, Mrs. John Browley Moses, both attended Smith College). She also writes, “Please forgive me for the briefness but thanks so much for your writing and for your nice comments about Ronnie…”
Like her husband, President Ronald Reagan, Nancy Reagan was an actress in her youth. As First Lady of the United States (1981-1989), Reagan championed the “Just Say No” drug awareness campaign, and was often compared to former First Lady, Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis, because of her similarly glamorous presence.
Written in ink on both sides of a sheet of “Mrs. Ronald Reagan” stationery that measures 10 ½” x 7 ¼”. Item #A00524.
Condition:  Fold lines, notes in pencil on top right corner and on verso not in Reagan’s hand, otherwise very good.
