It was not written to his wife, the iconic Jacquelin. It was not written to Marilyn Monroe, his once suspected mistress, but it was to Mary Meyer, a former wife of a CIA agent.

The October 1963 letter is thought to be President’s Kennedy’s last penned document. There are several oddities about this- the letter was never mailed, Kennedy was killed a month later by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas, Texas; and it was found in President Kennedy’s personal secretary papers, Evelyn Lincoln. In another strange brew, Mary Meyer (43) was killed in October, 1964, and police never solved the murder. It remains a Cold Case. She had been shot twice in the head in Georgetown near the river. A black man, Ray Crump, who was near the same location was arrested but then released for lack of evidence. But, just before Mary’s ex-husband, Cord Meyer, died in 2001, he stated that the same people who killed President Kennedy a month later, had killed his wife, Mary. He had been is mid-level CIA operations then. In addition, Howard Hunt also confessed the same thing to his son just before he died and implicated Cord Meyer, as well. Was the CIA involved with the Mary’s and Kennedy’s death? Did Mary know details about Kennedy's assassination?

In the letter, Kennedy writers: "Why don't you leave suburbia for once — come and see me — either here — or at the Cape next week or in Boston the 19th. I know it is unwise, irrational, and that you may hate it — on the other hand you may not -- and I will love it. You say that it is good for me not to get what I want. After all of these years — you should give me a more loving answer than that. Why don't you just say yes?

The reader is left with the feeling that Mary and Jack were lovers for some time, off and on, in secret. They no doubt had been together and Kennedy was smitten for sure. As for Mary, she seemed to be avoiding him otherwise, Kennedy would not be pleading for her to say “yes”. She seems to be trying to break away, while Kennedy, is not ready to. It also seems that the communication between the two is not like it was, it has grown more fragmented and distant. Did Mary’s CIA ex-husband know of the affair?

The letter is up for auction for $30,000, and it is on White House paper. Another coincidence is that records show that President Kennedy was in Boston on Oct. 19th for a Democratic Party fundraiser to the upcoming 1964 Presidential campaign.
