TLS as president, one page, 7 x 9, White House letterhead, October 20, 1956. Eisenhower writes to James Lyons, in full: “I was distressed to learn that you were a ‘casualty’ of our Washington State visit and that we had to leave you in the hospital in Tacoma. I sincerely trust that your knee is not too painful and that you will soon be back with us on your regular assignment.” Intersecting folds, light toning, and some trivial adhesive remnant below, but not affecting, the crisp signature, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, an unsigned photo of Eisenhower and a troupe of men in the Oval Office, and an original pass to the Vice Presidential Ball Committee held on January 24, 1969.
