On November 23, 1963 Jacqueline Kennedy went to the Oval Office to begin removing the late John F. Kennedy’s personal items. When she was going through his private desk drawers, however, she found two pieces of paper which shook her composure, although the motivating sentiment had been one of love. There she recovered two yellowed newspaper clippings that President Kennedy had kept there for over a year. Both were from April of 1962.
One, from the Washington Daily News, stated that when she had made her goodwill visit to India, she had “even outdone President Eisenhower as a drawing card.” The other, written during her visit to Pakistan quoted her as saying that she was especially saddened that her husband was not there with her.
