Typed Letter Signed: "Ike E", 1p, 7x10¼. Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, 1965 June 15. To Robert Cutler, Boston. In full: "I am sure that you must have been very happy with your dinner. Everybody had a wonderful time and I was particularly delighted to see how well our old associates looked. You, as well as Sinny Weeks, GeorgeHumphrey, Lewis Strauss and Douglas Dillon, looked even younger than you did six years ago! I met some very interesting individuals. There is one to whom I hope you will convey a special word of thanks, Robert Thayer. He insisted on volunteering to make a necessary phone call for me and in doing so gave me more time to visit with your guests. I could easily have sat down for a (sic) hour's conversation with each man present. For this, of course, there was no time whatsoever but my brief glimpse of each did convince me that you have a most wonderful crowd of close friends. With the hope that your book will soon be on the market and I can get a copy and, of course, with warm and personal regard. As ever," Typedpostscript: "P.S. I enclose a little poetry [not present] that was given to me by someone on the day I became 70." ROBERT CUTLER(1895-1974) was President Eisenhower's Special Assistant for National Security Affairs. The book referred to by Eisenhower was No Time for Rest published by Little, Brown in 1966. SINCLAIR "SINNY" WEEKS was Eisenhower's Secretary of Commerce, GEORGE HUMPHREY was his Secretary of the Treasury and LEWIS STRAUSS, his Secretary of Commerce. DOUGLAS DILLON was Eisenhower's Undersecretary of State when he was named by President-elect Kennedy to be Secretary of the Treasury. Lightly soiled at upper margin. Fine condition.
