Mamie Eisenhower sends an autograph letter of thanks for the flowers.
Autograph Letter signed: "Mrs Eisenhower" as First Lady, 2p (integral leaf), 5x7¼. Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, 1958 April 5. On letterhead of The Eisenhower Farms to "Dear Mrs McCaffree". In full: "The President and I thank you for your lovely Easter bouquet of yellow flowers fashioned by you. Your gift will look so pretty in the yellow guest room and will be a constant reminder of your thoughtfulness to us. We hope you have a pleasant weekend and also we enjoyed your 'Bunny' card with its cheerful message." Mamie Geneva Doud was born in Boone, Iowa on November 14, 1896. She met then Second Lieutenant Dwight D. Eisenhower in October 1915 while visiting friends at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. The Eisenhowers were married at noon on July 1, 1916 in the Doud family home in Denver. The outgoing Mamie, who accompanied her husband on many of his foreign travels, was a popular First Lady (1953-1961). The couple had purchased a farm in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, near the famous battlefield, in 1948, and completed their dream home there in 1955. After leaving the White House, the Presidential couple lived there until his death in 1969 and hers a decade later. The letter's recipient "Mrs. McCaffree", might be Mary Jane McCaffree, press and personal secretary to the First Lady, and White House protocol specialist, who later co-authored a book on official protocol. Fine condition.
