Lot 184: TLS, one page, 7 x 9, Attorney General letterhead, August 23, 1963. Letter to Mickey Mehas, in full: "Thank you very much for your expression of sympathy. It was very thoughtful of you to take the time to write. I know the President would appreciate, as I do, your kind thoughts." In fine condition. Two weeks prior, John and Jackie Kennedy lost their newborn son Patrick to infant respiratory distress syndrome just two days after his birth. Having already suffered a miscarriage in 1954, and a stillbirth the following year, Patrick's death was an especially difficult loss for the First Couple.
