Letters signed "Jack" are from his days in the House of Representatives and the Senate. Kennedy also thanks him for gifts and congratulates him on a new job. Mrs. Kennedy thanks Clark for Christmas gifts, discusses a wedding present to Clark's son, and looks forward to visiting with him on Martha's Vineyard.
