Dear Mr. Attorney General:

This is the first opportunity I have had to tell you how deeply I appreciated receiving your kind message of support for the measures I announced on May 8 to bring the fighting in Vietnam to an end.

As we all know, this has been the longest, most difficult conflict in our nation's history. All of us look forward to a lasting, honorable peace. That day is near-and can surely be brought even closer by two means. First, the enemy must return our prisoners of war and join in an internationally supervised cease-fire. Second, a demonstration of national unity will make unmistakably clear to the world our commitment to South Vietnam, our determination to protect American servicemen there, and our resolve to secure the release of our prisoners.

Your letter is an important part of this effort, and I am especially grateful for your willingness to speak out.

With my best wishes,

Sincerely,

Richard Nixon

Honorable Robert Morgan
