    [John F. Kennedy] Jacqueline Kennedy's Monogrammed Light Blue Half-Slip. This slip is monogrammed "JBK" in an embroidered pattern of cream lace ribbon and floral design at the front hemline. The slip was given to Mrs. Kennedy's personal secretary, Mary B. Gallagher, during one of Mrs. Kennedy's periodic closet cleaning sessions. Ms. Gallagher helped with the cleanings at Mrs. Kennedy's three Washington residences: 3307 N Street N.W., Georgetown (1956-1960); the White House (1961-1963); and, 3017 N Street N.W., Georgetown (1964). The slip is accompanied by a signed, typed letter from Mary Barelli Gallagher, former secretary to Senator John F. Kennedy (1953-1956) and personal secretary to Mrs. John F. Kennedy (1956-1964), stating that Mrs. Kennedy gave her the slip. The closet cleanings are referenced on page 51 in Ms. Gallagher's 1969 book, My Life with Jacqueline Kennedy. Very fine.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
