Description


Significant TLS as president, one page, 6.75 x 8.75, White House letterhead, November 27, 1963. Letter to Delaware Governor Elbert N. Carvel, in full: "I deeply appreciate your kind expression of solace in this tragic hour of our Nation's history. In the days ahead, I will need your continued prayers and support." In fine condition, with light toning to the upper part of the letter, and some light creasing along the central horizontal fold. Johnson signed this letter just five days after the assassination of John F. Kennedy and his own rushed presidential inauguration aboard Air Force One. On November 29th, two days after writing this letter, President Johnson renamed NASA's Cape Canaveral launch facilities as the John F. Kennedy Space Center and formally established the Warren Commission to investigate Kennedy's assassination and its surrounding conspiracies.
