JIM BISHOP. TLS: "Jim", 1p, 8½x11. Sea Bright, N.J., 1962 May 11. On letterhead of King Features Syndicate to Lou (Sobol). In full: "I am sorry to have missed the big affair. At the time, I was in Florida. Dad sustained a heart attack in Grand Bahama and was flown on oxygen into Miami. I was positive that he could not make it, but he fought his way out of a coma and back up to health. He'll be 79 in October and yesterday he sat in a jet with Dick Merrill of Eastern Airlines, homeward bound at 33,000 feet, discussing air traffic. God gives. God takes away. Rita and Mack Millar told us in Hollywood about your daughter and, thinking about some of your heartbreaks of the past, I began to wonder just how much a man can stand. No one can console you in any of these matters, but it seems sometimes as though tragedy is reserved for those best able to withstand it. My affection for you goes back a long way. It will last as long as you and I do. Sincerely." Jim Bishop (1907-1987), the author of over a dozen books, is credited with originating "The Day" style of journalism. His works include The Day Lincoln Was Shot, The Day Kennedy Was Shot, The Day Christ Was Born, The Day Christ Died, FDR's Last Year: April 1944-April 1945 and The Days of Martin Luther King, Jr. Lightly creased at blank areas. Date stamp touches vignette. Overall, fine condition.
