Eleanor Roosevelt to John F. Kennedy

Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt
202 Fifty-Sixth Street West
New York 19, N. Y.

                                                       January 6, 1959


Dear Senator Kennedy:

I am enclosing a copy of my column for tomorrow and as you will note I have given your statement as the fairest way to answer what are generally believed and stated beliefs in this country. People will, of course, never give names as that would open them to liability.

I hope you will feel that I have handled the matter fairly.

                                                       Very sincerely yours,

                                                       Eleanor Roosevelt
