John F. Kennedy sends a typed letter about constituent Thomas Bandini of East Boston.
Typed Letter Signed: "John" as Congressman, 1p, 8x10. Washington, D.C., 1949 May 9. 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 May 4th, with further reference to your interest in Thomas Bandini of 40 Ashley Street, West Boston, who is seeking a promotion in the postal service. As far as I know, the Postmaster has not yet returned to his office. However, as soon as he does, I intend to bring this matter to his attention. In the meantime, I am contacting Joe Finn, Acting Assistant Postmaster, in Mr. Bandini's behalf. I have written direct to Mr. Bandini today, to let him know what I have done in his behalf. With best wishes, I am, Sincerely yours". William F. Kelly was an aide to Congressman Kennedy. At the age of 28, John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) entered politics, involving most of the members of his family in his campaign to win the Democratic nomination for Congress in Massachusetts' Eleventh District. After beating out nine other candidates in the primary, he easily defeated the Republican nominee in the general election and he would go on to serve in the House 1947-1952, when JFK was elected to the U.S. Senate. Known for his accessibility to his constituents, Congressman Kennedy supported most of President Truman's "Fair Deal" program, although he occasionally attacked the President's foreign policy. Lightly creased. Horizontal fold touches the "J" and "h". 2 file holes at top blank margin.
