Mamie Doud Eisenhower - Typed Letter Signed 05/19/1954

MAMIE DOUD EISENHOWER
The First Lady writes to a friend asking for the name of a medication she mentioned the last time they were together.
Typed Letter signed: "Mamie Eisenhower" as First Lady, 1 page, 4½x7. The White House, Washington, D.C., 1954 May 19. On letterhead written to "Dear Frances" In full: "This is just a little note to remind you not to forget to write me about the pills you mentioned to me when you were here. I told my doctor about what you told me. Your trip back home must have been a pleasant one, with your various stepovers, and I enjoyed hearing about your cousins. It was so nice to see you again - there is nothing like an honest to goodness visit together, is there?" Accompanied by the transmittal envelope addressed to Mrs. George Strecker, Lake Forest, Illinois and postmarked Washington, D.C., May 21, 1954. On July 1, 1916, 25-year-old Second Lieutenant Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969) and 19-year-old Mamie Geneva Doud (1896-1979) were married in Denver, Colorado. They had two sons: Dwight Doud Eisenhower (1917-1920) and John Sheldon Doud Eisenhower (born in 1923). As an Army wife for 37 years, Mamie grew accustomed to entertaining groups of influential people, a talent she drew upon during her eight years as the White House hostess (1953-1961). In their 53 years of married life, the Eisenhower's lived in 33 homes; their last in Gettysburg was the only home they owned together. During Ike's final illness, Mamie moved into Walter Reed Army Hospital to be with him during the final months of his life. Dwight D. Eisenhower, the fifth general to be elected President, served as the nations' 34th President from 1953 to 1961. From the collection of George Strecker, an advertising executive at the Chicago Tribune who became close to the Eisenhower's through his wife, Frances, a long-time friend with Mamie Doud Eisenhower. Normal mailing fold. Otherwise, fine condition.
