Dwight D. Eisenhower autograph letter signed to his wife during WWII. Dated simply 5 June, it reads: ''Darling / Starting tomorrow I have a series of trips that will last without interruption from six to ten days. So if you have a lapse in arriving letters, don't jump at the conclusion that I don't want to write - I'll simply have no opportunity to pick up a pen. I'm a bit stymied in my mind as to subjects to write about. So many things are taboo - and the individual with whom you are acquainted (including myself) go along in accustomed ways. Mickey is a jewell [sic]. I often wonder how I existed without him. Anyway the real purpose of this note was to say I'm well, and love you as much as ever, all the time, day and night. Your picture (in a gilt frame) is directly in front of my desk. I look at you all the time. Another is in my bedroom. Loads of love - always. / Your Ike''. 1pp. on ruled stationery measures 8'' x 10.5''. Light toning and creasing, else near fine.
