Mamie Eisenhower sends a typed letter of thanks for the presents.
Typed Letter Signed: "Mamie Eisenhower", 1p, 6¼x9. Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, 1967 June 29. To David Marx, CHal Mar Farms, Shrewsbury, New Jersey. In full: "We are both grateful to you for the many presents and of course particularly for the tickets to CABARET. I know they are most difficult to get and I appreciate it more for that reason. It was so good to see you at the hotel, looking well fro we were worried about you when you had the virus. As I dictate this note I have not tried the TV-Radio because I just reached home. I must say that it is good to be back on the farm although it is always pleasant to see friends in New York. Please tell Charlene I missed seeing her and I hope we can get together in the country sometime for a real visit. Warm and affectionate greetings to you both," Cabaret had opened on Broadway on November 20, 1966, closing in 1969 after 1,165 performances. The musical takes place in Berlin in 1929-1930, before the start of Hitler's Third Reich. On July 1, 1916, 25-year-old Second Lieutenant Dwight D. Eisenhower and 19-year-old Mamie Geneva Doud (1896-1979) were married in Denver, Colorado. They had two sons: Dwight Doud Eisenhower (1917-1920) and John Sheldon Doud Eisenhower (born in 1923). As an Army wife for 37 years, Mamie grew accustomed to entertaining groups of influential people, a talent she drew upon during her eight years as the White House hostess (1953-1961). In their 53 years of married life, the Eisenhower's lived in 33 homes; their last in Gettysburg was the only home they owned together. During Ike's final illness, Mamie moved into Walter Reed Army Hospital to be with him during the final months of his life. ½-inch vertical crease touches 3 words of text.
