Senator Kennedy accepts an Andrew Johnson impeachment ticket

TLS signed “John Kennedy,” one page, 7.5 x 9.75, United States Senate letterhead, February 27, 1956. Letter to Mrs. Sam Bernstein, who has offered Kennedy a ticket to the 1868 impeachment trial of Andrew Johnson. In full: "Many thanks for your recent letter. It was very thoughtful of you to offer to send me a ticket of admission to the impeachment proceedings on April 25, 1868. I would, of course, be very glad to receive this ticket, but I am most reluctant to accept it as it must be of great interest to you." Beneath his signature Kennedy adds, "You were most kind." Archivally cloth-matted and framed with a handsome portrait of JFK to an overall size of 22.75 x 16. In fine condition.
