Nixon TLS Ironically Quotes Roosevelt: "No man is above the law..."

 

Typed Letter Signed “Dick”, 1p, 7.25" x 10.5". New York, October 11, 1967. Two file holes at top blank margin, tiny staple holes at upper left corner, mailing folds. To James S. Copley, Chairman, The Copley Press, La Jolla, California. Fine condition.

 

In full, “Dear Jim: That was an excellent speech which appeared in the Law Enforcement Bulletin, both from the standpoint of content and language. The parallel with the ‘thin red line’ was more than appropriate. Incidentally, I noted as well that you used the same quote by Teddy Roosevelt that I used in the enclosed article I wrote for the Reader's Digest.”

 

A conservative Republican, James S. Copley (1916-1973) was publisher of the “San Diego Union,” “The San Diego Union-Tribune,” and the “San Diego Evening Tribune” from 1947 until his death in 1973.

 

What was enclosed by Nixon is present: “A Reader's Digest Reprint,” 6p, 5" x 7.5", on one 15" x 7.5" sheet folded in thirds. Two file holes matching the holes on the letter at the top of each page. “What Happened to America?” by Richard M. Nixon was published in the October 1967 issue of “The Reader's Digest.”

 

The quote used by Copley in his speech published in the “FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin” and just used by Nixon in his article “What Happened in America?”, is bracketed in red by Nixon or Copley: “No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we require him to obey it.”

 

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
