January 20th, 1993george bush letter to clinton

Dear Bill,

When I walked to this office just now I felt the same sense of wonder and respect that I felt four years ago.  I know you will fee that, too.

I wish you great happiness here.  I never felt the loneliness some Presidents have described.

There will be very tough times, made even more difficult by criticism you may not think think is fair.  I’m not a very good one to give advice; but just don’t let the criticism discourage you or push you off course.

You will be our President when you read this note.  I wish you well.  I wish your family well.

Your success now is our country’s success.  I am rooting hard for you.  

Good Luck.
