Description

THE NEW FRONTIER ARRIVES: JACKIE goes “old school” on the day JFK won the White House: “Those reporters ... are so naughty”

ALS signed “Jackie,” on two panels of her folding 3.75 x 3 “Mrs. John Fitzgerald Kennedy” note card, no date [envelope postmarked November 8, 1960]. Jackie writes to Miss Grace Comans at Miss Porter’s School in Farmington, Connecticut, Jackie’s own prep-school alma mater. In full: “So many thanks for your sweet letter. It does amuse me to think at how those reporters will get the door slammed in their face at MPS! It does serve them right they are so naughty. I do think of you often & will always be grateful for Special Lit. My very best to you always….” Accompanied by the original mailing envelope addressed in Jackie’s hand. In very fine condition. The very significant date—November 8, 1960, the day on which JFK narrowly defeated Richard Nixon in the presidential election—grants the present item a most special cachet! R&R COA.
