Description

Kennedy to Collins on the New York Post—"extremely left-wing—& very anti-Catholic as you may have noticed"

ALS signed “Jack,” one page both sides, 6.25 x 9.25, United States Senate letterhead, no date. Letter to future Boston Mayor John F. Collins, in full: "Many thanks for your note. The article was one of three, all more or less unfriendly, appearing in N. Y. Post—which is extremely left-wing—& very anti-Catholic as you may have noticed; it has been my experience, and probably yours—that the only thing to do on these letters is to ignore them. Hope to see you both soon. My very best to your very exceptional wife." In fine condition, with a few small stains. Accompanied by an unsigned glossy 8 x 10 photo of JFK. Originates from the estate of former Boston Mayor John F. Collins.
