Letter From President Nixon to Secretary of State Rogers, Washington, March 26, 1970

US Government State Department


Washington, March 26, 1970

Nixon responded favorably to Rogers's statement on U.S. African policy, which was a more detailed and in-depth discussion on the subject than was given in Nixon's February 18 Report to Congress (See U. S. Foreign Policy for the 1970's: A New Strategy for Peace: A Report to the Congress by Richard Nixon, President of the United States, Washington, February 18, 1970).

Under Nixon's signature is written in an unidentified hand, “Do the notes on the next two pages suggest this was signed by machine after HAK's approval?
