Lot 92: TLS as president, one page, 7 x 8.75, White House letterhead, February 26, 1953. Letter to Congressman Charles R. Howell concerning a visit from a blind girl, in full: "I appreciate your letter on behalf of the Misses Carson whose appealing request touches me deeply. Although I cannot schedule a visit with them for the evenings of April twenty-third or twenty-forth [sic], I would like to see them during the day of April twenty-forth. The details of this arrangement will be made verbally with you. For reasons which I think are obvious, I must ask that this meeting be kept as unpublicized as possible, and on this I am confident of your and these young ladies' full cooperation. I am grateful to you for bringing this correspondence to my personal attention." In fine condition, with trivial soiling. Accompanied by a packet of copied letters, the correspondence referenced by Eisenhower. Provenance: The Everett Fisher Collection.
