One-page typed letter, dated July 19, 1999, signed by Bill Clinton (1946- ), forty-second President of the United States. In his brief letter, typed on The White House stationery, Clinton writes to internationally renowned architect Philip Johnson, referencing the launch of New York's massive Penn Station redevelopment project (in which Philip Johnson played a great role in designing) and offering him thanks for an undisclosed favor. Clinton writes in full: "Dear Philip: I enjoyed seeing you at the launch of the Penn Station redevelopment project event, and I thank you for your kind note and suggestion. As always, it's good to hear from you. Best Wishes." The letter is flawlessly signed "Bill Clinton" in black fine point marker, grading "10." Clinton was nearing the end of his second term in office at the time of this letter. Philip Johnson is one of the preeminent architects of the twentieth century and his many designs include the controversial AT&T headquarters in New York, International Place in Boston, Tycon Towers in Vienna, Virginia, and the Crystal Cathedral in California. The letter (6.75 x 8.75 inches) is in Excellent to Mint condition. LOA from Steve Grad & John Reznikoff/PSA DNA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR
