"welcome to california": personal note warmly inscribed by ronald reagan to mikhail and raisa gorbachev
Autograph note signed by Ronald Reagan on his personal letterhead as follows, “June 3 1990. Dear Mikhail & Raisa, Welcome to California! Fondly, & Ron.” Lacking the signature of Nancy Reagan which Ronald left space for before his own. The note was presumably discarded due to an obvious spelling error made in “Mikhail” which Reagan messily corrected and a revised version was ultimately given to the Gorbechevs. Matted and framed with a photograph of both the Reagan’s and Gorbachev’s. The entire piece measures 12.5 inches by 15.5 inches. Rare and desirable; a unique piece of history.
