Valentine’s Day is for lovers. And there are few better all-American couples than Ronald and Nancy Reagan. Check out this letter Reagan wrote to St. Valentine in 1977, discussing his deep love for Nancy.
Ronald Reagan’s Valentine’s Day Letter
Dear St. Valentine,
I’m writing to you about a beautiful young lady who has been in this household for 25 years now—come March 4.
I have a request to make of you, but before doing so feel you should know more about her. For one thing she has 2 hearts—her own and mine. I’m not complaining. I gave her mine willingly, and like it right where it is. Her name is Nancy but for some time now I’ve called her Mommie and don’t believe I could change.
My request of you is—could you on this day whisper in her ear that someone loves her very much and more and more each day? Also tell her, this “Someone” would run down like a dollar clock without her, so she must always stay where she is.
Then tell her if she wants to know who that “Someone” is to just turn her head to the left. I’ll be across the room waiting to see if you told her. If you’ll do this for me, I’ll be very happy knowing that she knows I love her with all my heart.
Thank you, “Someone” (Ronald Reagan)
How beautiful! Ronald Reagan truly loved Nancy!
