"...I am thrilled with the beautiful Oxford that Critt sent along to me. I have the fax from Mike Cohen but, Harold, I honestly believe it would be better not to commercialize the Christmas presents I gave to George and Jeb. You are always so thoughtful about asking me regarding any publicity, but this time I respecfully ask you to tell Mike Cohen that we better pass. It was thoughtful of him to ask before going ahead with the publicity. Have a great new year. Warm regards, /s/ George Bush"
