Offering a Autograph Letter signed, with envelope from Mamie Eisenhower to the White House Social Secretary.

Dear Mrs. McCappree,

You were so sweet to come by the hospital when General Eisenhower was ill. I felt so sorry that you had had no dinner and I could offer you none. The toffee will be good for my husband when his stomach becomes stronger. I thank you for him.

We came home Monday and we were both so exhausted we went to bed at 5pm. with dinner up stairs & lights out at nine. My time has been to the office last two mornings but stayed home in afternoons. He is quite tired and ______ diet and rest will ___ sure put him back to normal soon.

Talked to Mrs. _____ Monday night. She does not seem too happy at Southampton this year. Know she misses you. Nettie(?) R called me about sending Nettie(?) House ____ to me.

Affectionately
Mamie E.

Eisenhower, Mamie. Ike’s Farm, Gettysburg, PA: 17 August 1967. 4to.; 2p.; addressed envelope. To White House Social Secretary, Mrs. (Mary Jane) McCappree, Washington.
