The Searching Wind, Hellman, Lillian
23 Hellman, Lillian The Searching Wind
New York The Viking Press 1944 First Edition Cloth with Dustjacket 
Lillian Hellman's romantic world war II drama mixing a love triangle with politics. The play is notable for featuring the young Montgomery Clift. It had a somewhat respectable run of 318 performances on Broadway in 1944 and was later made into a film directed by William Dieterle with Robert Young, Sylvia Sidney and Douglas Dick (remember him?) in the role made famous by Clift. Hellman dedicated the play to Dorothy Parker. The nice dustjacket designed by The Immerman Studio has a very tiny touch of wear to the edges. The cheap wartime paper used is fine with no wear except for the usual age darkening of the paper. Vg+/Vg+.

30 Kennedy, Edward M. Small Engraved Thank You Card
Washington D.C. Edward M. Kennedy 1969 First Edition small Card in Envelope 
Small engraved thank you card from Senator Edward M. Kennedy and his wife. I can't figure out what the event was that the senator and his wife were thanking the person for. The small card has a gold emblem on the top and reads "Mrs. Kennedy and I are deeply grateful for your thoughtful words of support and encouragemnt. Please accept our warm thanks." The postmark is Aug. 27 1969 which is right after the controversial Chappaquiddick incident on July 18, 1969,, but I somehow don't think they would have sent out thank you cards over this. Bobby Kennedy had been dead for over a year, and Joe Kennedy would die in Nov. of 1969 so it couldn't have been for either of these. Your guess is as good as mine. In its original small envelope.

John was initially trained as an optician and instrument maker in New York City and became a prosperous wine merchant. Prior to the Revolutionary War, Lamb was a leading member of the Sons of Liberty.[1] He wrote articles in the and published anonymous handbills. When the news of the Battle of Lexington was received he and his men seized the military stores at Turtle Bay.
