Nixon Decides to Resign

Late afternoon on August 8, 1974…

The [Nixon] family had gathered [in the solarium]. Rose Mary Woods had come in a few minutes before [Nixon’s] arrival. “Your father has decided to resign,” she said, looking at the President’s two daughters….

The President stepped into the room. “We’re going back to California,” he said, and indicated that there would be no discussion. (p. 421, “The Final Days”)
