Lot 130: TLS signed "D. E.," one page, 7 x 10.25, personal letterhead, October 24, 1961. Letter to David Marx, of the famous toy manufacturer Louis Marx and Company, in part: "Now, there is one demand I make upon you. As a matter of fact, I think I will borrow from the experience of the past eight years and label it an 'Executive Order.' It seems to me that you and Charlene usually go out to the Palm Springs area around January. Mamie and I are planning to go out by train, leaving probably December eighteenth. The children are coming to be with us over the holidays. But once they leave (I think about January first) Mamie and I are going to keep the guest rooms inviolable until we know when you and Charlene can be with us for a long week end, or for whatever time we can snare you. Please come as early as you can and stay as long as you can. And, remember, this is a Commander-in-Chief (we will skip the retired part) speaking." In fine condition.
