John F. Kennedy Letter Signed "John" as U.S. Senator. One page, 8 1/8" x 6 1/8"; January 7, 1955.

A letter addressed to Mr. Paul C. Smith, President of the Crowell-Collier Publishing Company. Kennedy thanks Mr. Smith for the kind message when he was in hospital in New York recovering from spinal surgery in December 1954.

He writes, in part:

"Many, many thanks for your very kind message to me when I was in the hospital in New York. Hospitals are gloomy places, I am afraid; and it makes a tremendous difference when friends remember you as you did. I am feeling much better and am looking forward to getting back to Washington around the first of March. Perhaps then I will have a chance to thank you again in person. Until then, Jackie and I want to wish you and all your family a very happy and successful New Year."

The letter also includes a hand-written addendum at the bottom:

"Many, many thanks for your very kind note. I hope to see you when we are back North."

Included with the letter is a carbon copy of the reply from Paul C. Smith, which mentions the letter written by Jacqueline Kennedy offered as Lot 2 in this sale.
