TLS signed "Jack," one page, 8 x 10.5, House of Representatives letterhead, November 13, 1952. Letter to a campaign worker named "Joe," in full: "I want you to know how grateful I am to you for all your help over the past months. I am certain that we would never have been so successful against the Eisenhower landslide if it had not been for the effectiveness of our organization, an organization, in my opinion, that was the best that the state had ever seen. I am particularly appreciative of your help—for I know that the campaign took far too much of your efforts and energy away from your work, but it made all the difference and I am greatly indebted to you. I expect to go away soon for a few weeks, but I am looking forward to seeing you sometime soon to thank you personally. I hope you will let me know if there is ever anything I can do." Kennedy adds a handwritten postscript: "Many many thanks for all your help Joe." In fine condition, with a couple spots of slight staining and some light vertical creasing. A letter of great historical interest following Kennedy's election to the Senate with a close victory over Republican incumbent Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. Kennedy, with the help of his brother, launched an innovative and personal campaign that utilized volunteers across the entire state, an organization that he credits here as the backbone of his success.
