MAMIE DOUD EISENHOWER
Letter to a friend, mentioning her grandson David's efforts for Nixon's election and promoting husband Ike's new book. Written from Walter Reed Hospital, where she was living to be near her ailing husband.
Typed Letter signed: "Mamie Eisenhower", 1 page, 6½x9. Walter Reed Hospital, Washington, D.C., 1968 September 28. To "Dear Frances" [Strecker], Glencoe, Illinois, in full: "I did appreciate your nice letter and the clipping from the Lake Forester, regarding David and his assessment of Mr. Nixon and his promises. We had not seen this article, and I will show it to my husband. I am sure he will appreciate it very much. Tell your book club that it would be interesting if they would take up AT EASE, for their certainly have been many favorable comments on it, and it is considered one of Ike's better efforts. With affectionate greetings to you and Muriel". Accompanied by original mailing envelope. On July 1, 1916, 25-year-old Second Lieutenant Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969) 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. Dwight D. Eisenhower, the fifth general to be elected President, served as the nations' 34th President from 1953 to 1961. David Eisenhower, President Eisenhower's grandson was married to Richard Nixon's daughter Julie; they campaigned actively for Nixon during his successful 1968 presidential campaign. At Ease: Stories I Tell Friends showed the personal side of the President, a good story teller who never employed a ghost writer. From the collection of George Strecker, an advertising executive at the Chicago Tribune who became close to the Eisenhower's through his wife, Frances, a long-time friend with Mamie Doud Eisenhower. Multiple mailing folds. Lightly toned. Fine condition.
