James M. Gavin sends a typed letter suggesting that the recipient calls his secretary to set up an appointment but he may not be able to accommodate her.
Typed Letter Signed: "Jim Gavin", 1p, 7¼x10½. Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1969 March 11. To Miss Caroline Bird, The Presidents Association, Inc., New York, New York. In full: "Thank you very much for your letter of 7 March. I appreciate your interest in the volume of communications that come to my office. I will be happy to talk to you about it when circumstances will permit. As you suggest in your letter, if you will call my secretary, she will try to make an appointment for you. I hasten to add, however, that I am on a terribly busy schedule with a great of business travel both in the U.S. and abroad. In addition to this, we anticipate making a public offering of our stock this spring and this has added to the burden of administrative work in my office. It, therefore, may be a bit difficult to obtain the time that you would like. Sincerely," As an officer with the 82nd Airborne Division during WWII, James M. Gavin (1907-1990) parachuted with his troops during battles in Sicily, Normandy and the Netherlands, becoming known as "The Jumping General". After retiring from the Army, Gavin twice served as President Kennedy's Ambassador to France. After a 1967 visit to Vietnam, he urged negotiations to end the war "by any means available".
