Lot Details
KENNEDY, JACQUELINE BOUVIER.
Autograph Mourning Note, Signed ("Jacqueline Kennedy"), 1 p, 3 3/4 x 5 1/2 inches, [Washington, DC], November 25, 1963, with the original addressed envelope and two of the memorial prayer cards of the late President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, issued at his funeral, all mounted on a sheet of gray paper.
Provenance: Sue Mortensen Vogelsinger.

JACQUELINE KENNEDY'S THANKS TO SUE MORTENSEN FOR ALL HER WORK FOR THE PRESIDENT. The card reads "Thank you for all you did to help the President. Jacqueline Kennedy." While the entire nation mourned for the slain President, his widow took time to thank those people who had personally served her husband during his brief term in office. The card is not only appropriately edged in black but it bears the Kennedy coat of arms that was granted by the Irish Government and presented to the President by the Ambassador of the Republic of Ireland, T.J. Kiernan, on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 1961. The design combined the emblems historically associated with the Kennedy and Fitzgerald families in Ireland.
