With the release of Richard Nixon's love letters to his wife Pat, people are introduced to a softer side of Dick Nixon.
Olivia Anastasiadis: "These letters are fabulous. It's a totally different person from the Watergate tapes that people know. President Nixon started out as an idealistic young man ready to conquer the world and with Pat Ryan he knew he could do it. There's a lot of hope, there's a lot of tenderness and it's very poetic."

The publishing of a few of their love letters will hopefully help others understand the power and beauty of love letters.
