Typed Letter signed: "Ted Kennedy" as US Senator, 1 page, 6¼x8½. Included is the original mailing envelope. Washington, D.C., 1988 April 29. On Senate letterhead to Mrs. Michael Teti, New York, N. Y. In full: "It was with great saddness [sic] that I learned of Frank's death. He had been a good and loyal friend to all the members of the Kennedy family and we shall miss him very much. Frank was an excellent photographer whose work we admired, and his work is a magnificent legacy of which you can be most proud. The members of my family particularly enjoyed his book about the new generation of Kennedys. It was very well done - with warmth and integrity - and I was happy to be asked to write the preface for it. It has become a valuable reference and I have given it as gifts on my trips to foreign countries. It was received with great pleasure. I know that the loss of a child is the greatest grief that there is. Perhaps with time the pain will lessen, and I hope that the knowledge of how much Frank was loved and respected will help to make this difficult time more bearable. With my deepest sympathy". The younger brother of President John F. Kennedy and the youngest son of Ambassador Joseph Kennedy, Edward M. "Ted" Kennedy (1932-2009) was first elected to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts in 1962 to fill the seat vacated by his brother the President- serving until his death. Maturing from "kid brother" of the President into a national spokesman for liberal causes, he challenged incumbent President Jimmy Carter for the Democratic nomination in 1980, but fell short. Beset by personal tragedies, some of his own making, Ted Kennedy remained an eloquent and important voice in the Senate and in his party. His son Patrick became a U.S. Representative from Rhode Island. Normal mailing fold. Corners slightly worn. Fine condition.
