TLS signed “John Kennedy,” one page, 8 x 10.5, United States Senate letterhead, March 10, 1953. Letter to Joseph Finn, postmaster at Boston. In part: "I am writing on behalf of Mr. James B. Gannon…who is most desirous of obtaining a supervisory position in the Boston Post Office. It is my understanding that he has had almost eleven years service, mostly at the South Postal Annex, and handles the large group of applicants seeking employment during the Christmas rush each year. Twice he has been Commander of the Boston Post Office Chapter, DAV, an active organization of one thousand members, and is now serving as Adjutant-Treasurer of the organization. In view of his qualifications, I should appreciate your giving Mr. Gannon every possible favorable consideration." Kennedy adds a handwritten postscript: "I know that Mr. Gannon is worthy of consideration in this matter if at all possible." In fine condition. Accompanied by Finn's retained carbon copy of his response, and a copy of Gannon's personnel record from March 17, 1953.
