Scarce souvenir typescript of Dwight D. Eisenhower's "Acceptance Address" for the Presidential Nomination, given at the Republican National Convention in Chicago on July 11, 1952, three pages, 8.5 x 14, signed at the conclusion in black ink by Eisenhower. A portion of the speech is as follows: "You have summoned me on behalf of millions of your fellow Americans to lead a great Crusade—for freedom in America and freedom in the world. I know something of the solemn responsibility of leading a Crusade. I have led one. I take up this task, therefore, in a spirit of deep obligation. Mindful of its burdens and of its decisive importance: I accept your summons. I will lead this crusade…Today is the first day of our battle. The road that leads to Nov. 4th is a fighting road. In that fight I will keep nothing in reserve. I have stood before on the eve of battle. Before every attack it has always been my practice to seek out our men in their camps and along the road and talk with them face to face about their concerns and discuss with them the great mission to which we were all committed. In this battle to which all of us are now committed it will be my practice to meet and talk with Americans face to face in every section, every corner, every nook and cranny of this land…Wherever I am, I will end each day of this campaign thinking of millions of American homes large and small; of fathers and mothers working and sacrificing to make sure that their children are well cared for, free from fear; full of good hope for the future, proud citizens of a country that will stand among the nations as the leader of a peaceful and prosperous world. It is more than a nomination I accept today. It is a dedication—a dedication to the shining promise of tomorrow. As together we face that tomorrow, I beseech the prayers of all our people and the blessing and guidance of Almighty God." In fine condition. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
