ALS as president, one page both sides, 6.75 x 8.75, White House letterhead, no date. Letter to Dr. Tagor.

I have asked Professor Schlesinger to talk with you and he will relay any message you might have.” In fine condition, with show-through from writing to opposing sides. Historian Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., served as special assistant to President Kennedy from 1961 to 1963, primarily focusing on Latin American affairs. He won the Pulitzer Prize for his biography of the Kennedy administration, A Thousand Days, in 1966. Autograph letters from Kennedy as president are quite scarce. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
