Important typed letter signed by President Richard Nixon on 24 June 1971 regarding the defining issue of the late 1960s, Vietnam. Here, Nixon thanks Congressman Bill Young for voting against the Nedz-Whalen amendment, which Nixon believed was ''proposed seeking to legislate a deadline for American involvement in Indo-China'' by halting funding for the war. Nixon writes in small part: ''...This action [defeating the Amendment] by the House of Representatives helped materially to strengthen the efforts of this Administration to achieve a cease-fire, the release of American prisoners, and the negotiation of a just peace...While we continue to reduce American forces in Indochina, various proposals may be advanced in Congress similar to Nedzi-Whalen. Their adoption would seriously jeopardize the progress we are making in ending American involvement in Vietnam and in achieving a just peace...together we might increase the chances not only of ending this war but also of ensuring that other Americans will not have to fight other wars in the future...[signed] RN''. 1pp. on White House letterhead measures 6.75'' x 10.5''. Near fine. With University Archives COA.
