Description


Unsigned handwritten draft by Senator Kennedy for a reply to A. M. Larmore, written in the lower margin of the letter sent to him, one page, 8.5 x 11, April 11, 1957. Responding to a kind note in appreciation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book Profiles in Courage and virtue in modern America, Kennedy writes: "Thank him for a most interesting letter. In reading it I was reminded of Dante's words: 'The hottest places in Hell are reserved for those who in a period of moral crisis, maintain their neutrality. Best regards." In fine condition, with rusty staple holes to the upper left corner. Accompanied by a typed transcript on Senate memo paper, and a modern print of a photograph of John F. Kennedy in a convertible during his campaign.
