Lot 9003

TLS, one page, 8 x 10.5, Congress of the United States letterhead, no date but postmarked December 29, 1952. Letter to Stella N. Dubovik. In part: "Since I have returned from Europe, I have been delayed in telling you how much I appreciate all of your efforts during the past months of the campaign. I am certain that we never would have survived the Eisenhower landslide if it had not been for the effectiveness of our organization…which was the best that the state had ever seen. I fully realize that this victory was won by the people such as yourself who carried out the many arduous but necessary tasks which constitute political success, and I want you to know how grateful I am to you for all your assistance." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope bearing a pre-printed free frank. Congressman Kennedy had won the November election for Senate, toppling the Lodge family dynasty in Massachusetts. In a campaign run by his brother Bobby, Kennedy had made a point of visiting every city, town, and village in Massachusetts at least once during the hard-fought race for the seat. A fantastic letter marking a major transition in JFK's political career.

Estimate: $1000-1500
