ALS as first lady, one page both sides, 6 x 9.25, White House letterhead, April 7, 1962. Letter to notable financier Bernard Baruch. In full: “Now you make me feel so guilty!—but so happy that I think I will give in to the latter emotion—It is a most fantastically generous and patriotic thing you have done—to part with such a treasure as Woodrow Wilson's portrait by [Sir William] Orpen—I hope all your sadness at missing it will be assuaged by knowing what it will mean to all the countless people who will see it here—now and for generations to come—They will love Wilson all the more—for at last they will see what he really was like—and you—for giving it to the White House—The President is even more grateful than I am—if such a thing is possible.” In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, addressed in Kennedy’s hand. As first lady, Jacquline Kennedy’s first major project was the restoration of the White House and promotion of its importance; she sent countless personal requests to those who owned pieces of historical interest that might be donated. In 1962, she published a guide book to the Executive Mansion in hopes of spreading knowledge of its history within the general citizenry. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
