The Eleanor Roosevelt Papers

John F. Kennedy to Eleanor Roosevelt

May 29, 1958

Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt
211 East 62nd Street
New York, New York

Dear Mrs. Roosevelt:

I was disappointed that events conspired to make it impossible for us to keep our appointment when you were in Washington. I can only hope that I will have another opportunity to see you the next time you come down here.

If you do not plan to be in Washington in the near future, I would be glad to see you in New York at some mutually convenient date.

With every good wish,
Sincerely yours,

John F. Kennedy
