Description: [Bush, George Herbert W.] 4 signed items (2 ALSs + 2 TLS/TNSs), each to Rex Scouten. Provenance: Rex Scouten Collection of White House Americana. Scouten served 10 Presidents from Truman to Clinton, including time as a Secret Service agent, Chief Usher of the White House, and White House Curator. ++ ALS on Vice Presidential cardstock. Good wishes to Rex Scouten as he retired from his position as Chief Usher of the White House. Handwritten text, in full: “Jan 19, 1986/ Dear Rex- As you leave the White House that you served with such dedication & honor Barbara & I want to wish you well. Congratulations on your superb years & dedicated unselfish service to this country and to the White House, that symbolizes our strength and stability-/ Thanks, too, for the many courtesies to me and my family - Sincerely/ Geg Bush.” In original envelope, but not sent through the mail, presumably having been given to Scouten while at the White House. ++ ANS to Rex Scouten on George Bush’s personal cardstock, during Scouten’s work as White House Curator. Reads in full: “10-8-93/ Dear Rex- Thanks for these. I’ll try to decide soon. We like Abrams, the man who did Jimmy Carter; but no final decision has been made./ We miss you and all at the White House - Warm Regards - Gg Bush.” Original envelope bears Bush’s Houston address, but the envelope does not appear to have been sent through the mail. 12mo. ++ TNS. Typed text reads in full: “January 11, 1994/ Rex, Nick Brady is very high on this guy. Perhaps, he should be considered for the portrait. Your call.” Signed “Sincerely, Gg Bush.” On a card with Bush’s name printed at top (not the same as the cardstock used for the ANS of Oct. 8). ++ TLS, transmitting “samplings” from Ronald Sherr, and stating that “Nick Brady is very high on him.” Signed “Gg.” 8vo. Bush’s Houston personal letterhead (different stylistically from the others described above).
