Former US president's love letter to mistress goes on auction

The love note which was put up by Boston's RR Auction was written to JFK's lover, while he was still married to his wife, Jacqueline Bouvier, a woman who stayed devoted to him until his assassination.

John F. Kennedy

The love note was an appeal to his mistress to pay him a visit from her location in Suburbia.

It reads, "Why don't you leave suburbia for once – come and see me – either here – or at the Cape next week or in Boston the 19th,"

I know it is unwise, irrational, and that you may hate it – on the other hand you may not – and I will love it." "You say that it is good for me not to get what I want. After all of these years – you should give me a more loving answer than that. Why don't you just say yes?"

Kennedy served as the 35th president of the United States between January 20, 1961 to November 22, 1963, the year of his assassination.

He was married to Jacqueline Bouvier, until his death in 1963.
