Full transcription: January 7, 1958 Mr. Frank Kent Johns Hopkins Hospital Baltimore, Maryland Dear Frank: On my return to your office I called you and learned to my distress that you are temporarily in the hospital. Having had some experience with those gloomy places in the past, I hope you will soon be back on your feet - - but will not rush it. We are going to need men like you in circulation for a longtime to come. My very best wishes to you, and I look forward to seeing you in the near future. Sincerely yours, Jack Kennedy (John F.
