41st President. Fantastic autograph letter signed (ALS) “George Bush” on personal stationery from Houston, Texas, 6×18.5, April 27, 1995, addressed “Dear Lew”, which was Lew Preston who was President of the World Bank at the time, in full:
As the ‘changing of the guard’ approaches I just want to tell you how grateful I am (and always will be) to you for taking on that huge challenge and doing it so well.
I hope this finds your health in better shape.
‘Well done,’ Lew – so very well done.
Preston would die a week later, on May 4, 1995.
