Love Letter

“The nicest thing a girl ever did for me was when a girl named Nancy married me and brought warmth and joy to my life that has grown with each passing year. I know she won’t mind if I say the second nicest thing was a letter from a little fifth grade girl last week. She added a P.S. ‘You devil you.’ I’ve walked with a swagger ever since.”–Letter to Helen Gurley Brown, editor of Cosmopolitan, who wrote Reagan asking him to “jot down…the nicest thing a girl ever did for me.” (May 28, 1971; ref. Reagan: A Life in Letters)
