ALS signed “Bob,” one page, lightly-lined, 8 x 10.5, May 30, 1967. Letter to Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara. In full: “Many thanks for the discussion. You have carried the burden so well for so long. And for this we are all grateful—and I speak especially for my children and the others like them.” McNamara has added the date in pencil, as well as “Kennedy,” after the signature, and “Mid-East & Gulf of Aqaba SVN—my 5/19.” In fine condition. McNamara’s notations refer to the Egyptian blockade of the Gulf of Aqaba, which led to the Six Day War just one week later; as well as a reference to South Vietnam, where American forces intercepted North Vietnamese Army units moving in from Cambodia. Letter originates from the estate of Robert McNamara. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
