DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER
The President thanks a New Yorker for her birthday gift of an antique elephant, which he expects will bring him good luck in the final two weeks of his campaign for re-election.
Typed Letter Signed: "Dwight D. Eisenhower" as 34th U.S. President, 1p, 7x9. The White House, Washington, 1956 October 22. To Mrs. C.D. Mallory, 810 Fifth Avenue, New York City. In full: "Thank you very much for the antique ornament you so kindly sent me for my birthday. I am sure this little elephant will help bring me good luck and success in the weeks just ahead. With my warm appreciation and best wishes." Ike turned 66 on October 14th. Fifteen days after he thanked Mrs. Mallory for her "good luck" elephant, he defeated Democrat Adlai E. Stevenson in the November 6, 1956 election in the greatest landslide since FDR in 1936: 35.6 million to 25.7 million popular votes, 457-73 electoral votes and 41-7 states. The elephant, a symbol of the Republican Party, and the Democratic donkey were the creations of political cartoonist Thomas Nast, staff artist of "Harper's Weekly" (1862-1886). In the 1960s, 810 Fifth Avenue was the residence of Richard Nixon and Nelson Rockefeller. Lightly shaded at edges, mounting remnants on verso lightly show through to corners, ½-inch horizontal fold at lower right corner. Yellowed edges. Overall, fine condition.
