A Boston auction house is preparing to sell a number of letters written by former U.S President JFK to his Swedish mistress.
In 1953, JFK met the aristocrat just weeks before his marriage to former First Lady, Jackie Kennedy.
The letters were published between 1955 and 1956 and Kennedy describes their time together as “a bright memory” in his life.
The eight-page collection is expected to sell for more than 30,000….
The woman at the centre of the letters previously published a book about her relationship with J-F-K titled “Love, Jack”.
