[JOSEPHINE ALMOND (MRS. JAMES LINDSAY ALMOND, JR.)]. Reproduction of an Autograph Note with facsimile signature: "Josephine and Lindsay Almond", 1p, 6¼x9. No place, no date. In full: "The year draws to a close and the historical and religious heritage of a free people calls for our attention. First our American Thanksgiving - a time to light many tapers of thankfulness for blessings. Our cup truly runneth over - because of this and for all that you, our friends mean to us, praise and gratitude fill our hearts. May you, too, be able to count many blessings. Second, the Blessed Christmas season - a time to share; a time to worship; a time to look up to the stars on a cold winter's night and from their quiet beauty gather peace for the soul. Then, The Night when the angels' song brings the message of love, hope, peace, and good will to men. Our loving thoughts will be with you and yours, though no card will proclaim it. As the old year wanes and the New Year dawns may the light of Christmas continue to cast its rays that you and yours will 'know no fear while love, faith and God's own peace fills every day'. God bless you". JAMES LINDSAY ALMOND, JR. (1898-1986), a veteran of WWI and an attorney, married JOSEPHINE KATHERINE MINTER in 1925. Almond was a Democratic U.S. Representative from Virginia from 1946-1948 before serving as Virginia's Attorney General (1948-1957) and Governor of Virginia (1958-1962). He then became a Judge on the U.S. Court of Customs and Patent Appeals (1962-1982) and a Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (1982 until his death in office in 1986). Slightly creased with fold. Nicked at mid-lower margin. Fine condition.
