The White House. A typed letter signed "Lyndon B. Johnson" as President on "The White House" letterhead. Johnson wrote to the Ambassador to the Philippines William McCormick Blair Jr. on Blair's fiftieth birthday that occurred during the historic Manila Summit Conference: "Dear Bill: What a happy coincidence for you to have a birthday on the convening of this historic conference in the city of your Ambassadorial assignment! I am sure this birthday will be one that will seldom be surpassed either for the hours you have worked, the contributions you have made, or the illustrious company with whom you have participated on this occasion. I want to wish you many more birthdays - less hectic than this perhaps, but certainly filled with the warm good wishes of so many friends as you have with you today. Sincerely, Lyndon B. Johnson". At the 1966 Manila Summit Conference, Johnson and leaders from six other nations met to discuss the Vietnam War. The letter is in very fine condition with a faint mailing fold.
