More About this Item


Description: THANKS FOR LIKING IKE EISENHOWER, DWIGHT D. Autograph Letter Signed, to several celebrity supporters, retained draft, expressing gratitude for their support at the Madison Square Garden rally. With a one-page holograph list of the intended celebrity recipients, including Mr. and Mrs. Irving Berlin, Sara Delano Roosevelt, and 14 others. Together 3 pages, 8vo, personal stationery, written on rectos only of separate sheets; remnants of prior mounting at upper edge verso of each leaf. Np, [31 October 1952]
Notes: "Except for your personal participation, the Garden show last night would never have been the brilliant success that everybody today is according it. It is my misfortune that I am never allowed to see the interesting parts of these political rallies, but your talent and obvious sincerity deeply impressed all my friends who were lucky enough to see you."
On October 30, 1952, days before Eisenhower was elected president, a rally was held by the New York Republican County Committee at Madison Square Garden, at which General Eisenhower addressed the audience. It is likely that one of the songs Irving Berlin composed for the use of Eisenhower's campaign was performed at the rally: "They Like Ike," or "I Still Like Ike," or "Ike For Four More Years."
