JOHN F. KENNEDY Kennedy thanks an aide in Boston for information on nurses' uniforms, informing him that he will pass the information on to the Internal Revenue Service Typed Letter Signed: "Jack" as U.S. Representative from Massachusetts, 1p, 8x10½. Washington, District of Columbia, January 15, 1947. On letterhead of Congress of the United States, House of Representatives to Mr. William Kelly, East Boston, Massachusetts. In full: "Thank you for sending me the information on the nurses' uniforms. I have written to the Commissioner of Internal Revenue to get a ruling on the matter and will let you know as soon as I hear. I am returning the brief as you requested. Sincerely". Brief not present. William F. Kelly was an aide to Congressman Kennedy. John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), a decorated US Navy veteran of World War II, represented Massachusetts in the U.S. House of Representatives (1947-1953) and Senate (1953-1960). In 1957, he was named to the prestigious Foreign Relations Committee. During his first term as U.S. Senator, Kennedy co-wrote the Pulitzer Prize-winning Profiles in Courage while recovering from back surgery. The book discusses eight times in U.S. history where a U.S. Senator stood up for what he thought was right, no matter what his party or the public had to say. Kennedy went on to become the nation's 35th President. Sadly, his tenure in the Oval Office was cut short by the infamous assassination in Dallas Texas, on November 22, 1963, subject to numerous conspiracy theories in the decades since. Slightly creased with folds, not at signature. Two file holes at upper blank margin. Two paper clip rust stains at upper left margin touch imprinted name and district. Fine condition.
