Lot 327: TLS, two pages, 8.5 x 11, Congress of the United States letterhead, November 28, 1995. Letter to Richard Liblong, in part: "As you mentioned in your letter, I was riding in the motorcade several cars behind President Kennedy when he was assassinated. I had traveled with the President from Washington on his trip to Texas, as he and I had been friends since the early 1950's. The President had enjoyed the opportunity to receive a very warm and moving reception in my home city of San Antonio. I had, however, been apprehensive about going to Dallas all along, and had even tried to delete Dallas from the agenda when the trip was still in the planning stage. My apprehension was still just as great when we began the motorcade in Dallas. A few minutes later my worst fears were realized when I heard gunfire. The cars we were in jerked and then sped off following the President's car to the hospital. I stayed with Mrs. Kennedy at the hospital and witnessed her removing her wedding ring and placing it on the President's left hand." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope.
