REAGAN, RONALD. 1911-2004.
Autograph Letter Signed ("Ronnie"), 1 p, 4to, [Pacific Palisades], May 31, , to Chet Sampson of Grosse Pointe, MI, on personal letterhead, very light creasing and toning, otherwise fine, with original autograph transmittal envelope.
In 1957 Reagan appeared in Hellcats of the Navy with his second wife, Nancy Davis, one of his last film roles. Chet Sampson was a Michigan educator who regularly brought his students to Hollywood to meet popular actors. Here Reagan writes a thank-you note to Sampson for a recent gift. In part: "I had lost your address and tried to thank you for the jam & candle sticks by first addressing you at Grosse Pointe but my letter was returned. So now--thanks very much it was certainly thoughtful of you and much appreciated. / I'll keep your schedule on the desk and hope nothing happens to prevent our getting together."
