President Ford's now-famous telegram to Jimmy Carter congratulating him on his election victory.

Because President Ford lost his voice during the last days of the campaign, First Lady Betty Ford read the telegram aloud in the White House Press Room.

Original documents located in Box 6 of the "White House Central Files Subject File" at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library.
