John F. Kennedy to Eleanor Roosevelt

January 22, 1959

Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt

New York 19, New York

Dear Mrs. Roosevelt:

Many, many thanks for your very gracious letter of January 20. I appreciate your assurance that you do not believe in these rumors and you understand how such matters arise. I would not want to ask you to write another column on this and I believe we can let it stand for the present.

I do hope that we have a chance to get together sometime in the future to discuss other matters, as I have indicated before.

Again many thanks for your consideration and courtesy, and with every good wish, I remain

Sincerely yours,

John F. Kennedy
