    John F. and Jacqueline Kennedy: White House Staff Christmas Card, 1963. Just one month after the tragic death of her husband, former First Lady Jackie Kennedy issued this card to her staff at the White House. Measuring 16" x 13" (sight), this large card features a print of the White House's Green Room. At bottom left is a printed inscription from the First Couple reading, "With our appreciation and best wishes for a happy Christmas / 1963." Below the sentiment are the printed signatures of JFK and his wife. Matted and framed to an overall size of 27.25" x 24.25".

    Accompanying the card is a typed memorandum from Social Secretary, Nancy Tuckerman, written on White House letterhead, reading in part: "Mrs. Kennedy has asked me to express her deep appreciation to The White House staff for their faithfulness during the past three years. She is especially touched by your untiring devotion during the past two weeks and your loyalty at this sad time has been a great source of comfort to her."
