WASHINGTON: A four-page love letter written by John F. Kennedy to his mistress is being auctioned and is up for sale. The online auction is being held by RR Auction beginning June 16 that will conclude on June 23. The value of the letter is estimated to be $30,000, based on similar items sold. “Why don’t you leave suburbia for once – come and see me,” the letter said, ending with a plea, “Why don’t you just say yes?” The note penned on October 1963, never made it to the intended recipient, who is thought to have been Mary Meyer, the President’s mistress. Meyer was the wife of a CIA agent and was killed in October 1964,a year after the letter was crafted. Her slaying has not been solved. The letter also was one of the last Kennedy wrote. He was assassinated a month later. The love letter shows Kennedy’s earnestness to see the unnamed woman. The letter read, “Why don’t you leave suburbia for once — come and see me — either here — or at the Cape next week or in Boston the 19th. I know it is unwise, irrational, and that you may hate it — on the other hand you may not – and I will love it. You say that it is good for me not to get what I want. After all of these years — you should give me a more loving answer than that. Why don’t you just say yes?” Along with the letter, several other JFK items are for sale, including a wooden rocking chair used by him. RR Auction determined the letter’s authenticity through handwriting tests According to RR Auction, the letter, written on White House stationery, is missing the tops of the official letterhead. But when held to the light, the faded presidential seal watermarks are visible. It isn’t known why the letter was never mailed, but Kennedy’s personal secretary, Evelyn Lincoln, saved it in her collection of memorabilia from the late president. “An exceedingly rare Kennedy letter boasting revelatory content on his personal life during the presidency,” executive vice president at RR Auction Robert Livingston said which obtained the letter from a client.
