JACQUELINE KENNEDYHandwritten letter to author Stephen Appelbaum, congratulating him on an article and eagerly awaiting his new book. Written during her years as senior editor at Doubleday. Autograph Letter Signed: "Jackie", 1 page, 5½x7¾. No place, no date, but accompanying envelope is postmarked February 6, 1986. To "Dear Stephen" [Appelbaum]. In full: "What a pleasure to hear from you. I found your piece on Artie Shaw fascinating-It says everything about being young, growing up, growing older and wise-it is bittersweet and rewarding at the same time. I haven't heard from Pete-but I know he will stick to that land in Kenya he loves so, and the Kenyans want the land for development so they will try to frame him-so sad. Your book on healing will surely be wonderful and I hope it won't be too long before it is finished. Good luck in everything as ever." Born Jacqueline Bouvier in 1929, Jackie married John F. Kennedy in 1953. The third-youngest first lady, she left behind no policy initiatives but set a high standard for style and grace in her person and in the White House, and with her tragic dignity after her husband's assassination. From 1968 until his death in 1975, she was married to Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis. From 1978 to 1994 she was an editor at Doubleday in New York. Joseph P. Kennedy, Jackie's father in law, referred to in this letter as sick but still living, died on November 18, 1969. Although she influenced and wrote introductions for many other books, Jackie left no finished memoirs of her own. A manuscript like this one therefore offers rare insights into the memories of the First Lady of Camelot. Normal mailing fold. Slightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
