TO WHITE HOUSE INTERIOR DECORATOR SISTER PARISH KENNEDY, JACQUELINE. Autograph Letter Signed, "XO / Jackie," to Mrs. Henry Parish II ("Dear Sister"), concerning the decor of her husband's room at the Kennedy family estate on Cape Cod. 1 1/2 pages, 8vo, "Hyannis Port" stationery [letterhead crossed out with "33 7th St N.W." written beside it]; horizontal fold. With the original envelope, addressed in her hand, on verso is written a 4-line holograph postscript requesting samples for curtains. Washington, [13 June 1960: from postmark]
"This is the wallpaper in Jack's room at the Cape. As you may remember there is a big white chair & some hook rugs with orange & red in them. "Would you send me some samples for a dust ruffle for the beds (2 twin beds). If it is an unobtrusive pattern I might use it for curtains in the room too. "1) Should the dust ruffle have box pleats like the chair--or be ruffled? "2) If you don't think the dust ruffle should match the curtains, would you send me some samples for the curtains also . . . . "I am trying to lure DB to our house to meet eligible men of 52 or 53!"
