After a good amount of research, I found the personal letter to your father on CBS letterhead and signed by Dan Rather in 1968 has a retail vintage memorabilia value of $300-350.
The fact that you know its direct provenance and that it is a personal letter gives it a higher value.
A private seller to a dealer can expect 40-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.
