We offer a President George W. Bush signed legislation sponsor appreciation letter on White House Stationary, along with the commemorative ballpoint pen with the Presidential Seal. The signature is uniquely different from auto pen examples and presumed authentic. The letter was to Congressman Bill Young, who proposed the legislation. The letter concerned the President's having designated the week of July 28, 1991, as National Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Week. To me it seems that there was a typographical mistake that was not caught. Since the letter refers to the President having signed the resolution on August 6th, 1991, seems to me that the week was meant to be the following year... not the month before. A mistake in a Presidential letter should enhance the value, should it not? For me, just the idea of having a signed letter from the President of The United States is exciting enough. Congressman Young kept is through the years.
Size: The letter is 6.5 inches by 9 inches.
Condition: Very good, no issues noted.
Circa: Letter is dated August 20th, 1991.
Provenance: From the Estate of Congressman Bill Young.
