Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. writes a letter of thanks for the manuscript which he has forwarded to Mr. Summerfield.
Typed Letter Signed: "H.C. Lodge, Jr.", 1p, 8x10½. United States Senate, Washington, D.C.,1952 July 25. The Republican Senator from Massachusetts writes to Mr. M. I. Lynch. In full: "Thank you for your letter and enclosed manuscript, which I have read with a great deal of interest. In accordance with your request, I am forwarding it to Mr. Summerfield, who is now Chairman of the Republican National Committee. Many thanks for your kind words in connection with the Eisenhower campaign. I think it is a great result which will be wonderful for your country. With best wishes," Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. (1902-1985), the grandson of Henry Cabot Lodge, began his political career in the Massachusetts state house of representatives (1933-1936) before serving as a Republican U.S. Senator from Massachusetts (1937-1944 and 1947-1952, his terms split due to his service during WWII). Defeated by John F. Kennedy in 1952, Lodge was appointed by President Eisenhower as Chief of the U.S. Mission to the United Nations in 1953. Having both the rank of Ambassador and a position on Ike's Cabinet, Lodge became influential in the formulation of U.S. foreign policy. His exposure during frequent televised UN debates led to his selection as Richard Nixon's running mate for Vice President in 1960, but the ticket lost to Democrats JFK and LBJ. Sent to South Vietnam as Ambassador by President Kennedy and again by President Johnson, Lodge was later dispatched by President Nixon as U.S. Representative at the Paris peace talks on Vietnam. In between Vietnam assignments, he was U.S. Ambassador to Germany. Lodge won the Republican Presidential primary in New Hampshire as a write-in candidate in 1964. Staple holes at upper corner. Fold creases touching "H. C. L" of signature. Lightly creased at corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
