Description

Description: In this 1943 typed letter signed, Tunney writes as Commander in the U. S. Naval Reserves to a Schenectady woman, Genevieve Stebbins, who had been a governess to his four children. Apparently, Ms. Stebbins wrote Tunney a flattering letter, and he responds in kind. He also muses about himself stating in part: ". . . I am always trying to do and say what I conscientiously think to be right. I believe in the good life, eternal verities and the laws of morality." Written on a 10 1/2" x 8" sheet of Navy Department imprinted stationery. Item #A00327.

Condition: Slight smudging to the "y" in Tunney, otherwise very good.
