JFK’s love letter – level 2

JFK’s love letter – level 2

15-06-2016 15:00

John F. Kennedy was a president not unfamiliar with scandal. Now, you have the chance to buy something from his life – a letter to his mistress, Mary Pinchot Meyer.

We know that the four-page correspondence is real because it is on White House stationery, it comes right from JFK’s personal secretary, and people identified Kennedy’s handwriting.

Kennedy wrote it in October, 1963 and the 35th President died a month later when a man shot him. The letter goes on auction on June 23, and the price will not go under 30,000 dollars. We do not know the final price, but it could go much higher because many people are interested in ir.

Difficult words: unfamiliar with (if you’re unfamiliar with something, you do not have experience with it), mistress (a woman other than the man’s wife who has a relationship with a married man), stationery (paper you use that shows letters are from you).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
