#38 - Janet Bouvier Auchincloss Typed Letter Signed Estimate: $200+

To writer Jim Bishop, on 'A Day in the Life of President Kennedy': "I think Caroline and John would like to read it in years to come"

TLS signed “Janet Lee Auchincloss,” one page, 5.75 x 7.75, personal letterhead, March 21, 1964. Letter to author Jim Bishop, in full: "Thank you very very much for sending us 'A Day in the Life of President Kennedy.' I appreciate more than I can say your thoughtfulness. I enjoyed it very much, although it made me very sad. More and more as the years go by, it will be interesting to see what a day in a President's life and that of his family was like. I think Caroline and John would like to read it in years to come." She adds a handwritten postscript, "I hope we may meet one day. I have always enjoyed your writing." In fine condition, with some light creasing, and staple holes, to the top. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope addressed in her own hand.

From the collection of Ronald E.F. Hoskins.
