This lot has closed

Estimate: $200+


TLS signed “Love, George,” one page, 6.25 x 8.5, personal letterhead, September 28, 2001. Letter to JoAnne Bagnell, in full: "Your note was so thoughtful. Your concern and support meant a lot to Barbara and me. Please keep our beloved son in your prayers. The problems he faces now and will face in the months ahead seem overwhelming, but he is strong and he is supported by a great team. Barbara sends love, too. Thanks again for that wonderful note.” In very fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope. A poignant letter that dates to a little over two weeks after the 9/11 attacks.

The recipient was the wife of Francis J. ‘Reds’ Bagnell (1928-1995), a Navy veteran and All-American tailback for the University of Pennsylvania who served as president of the College Football Hall of Fame and was appointed to the American Battle Monuments Commission by Ronald Reagan and George Bush.
