JOHN F. KENNEDY The Massachusetts Congressman writes to an aide in Boston regarding invitations he will receive to attend two functions Typed Letter Signed: "Jack" as U.S. Representative from Massachusetts, 1p, 6¼x9. Washington, District of Columbia, March 3, 1950. On letterhead of Congress of the United States, House of Representatives to Mr. William F. Kelly, East Boston, Massachusetts. Begins: "Dear Bill". In full: "I have your letter of February 23rd, relative to two invitations which will be sent to me: one for a reception to the Gold Star Mothers at the Vendome on May 6th; and the other a banquet by the East Boston Division of the MTS for a young fellow who is to be ordained in the priesthood some time in June. I'm afraid that it is not going to be possible for me to get up to the Gold Star affair on the 6th of May, since I have a previous commitment for that evening. But I shall try to attend the banquet. However, I shall give these invitations my close attention when I receive them, and maybe something can be worked out. My best wishes to you. Sincerely yours". 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. Lightly creased with folds, not at signature. Fine condition.
