JFK Letter

Today, Gunilla von Post is auctioning off old love letters and telegrams that former President John F. Kennedy sent her back when he was a U.S. Senator, and even after he was married.

JFK met Post in 1953 on the French Riviera. They shared a passionate night of dancing, and ended the evening with a kiss. Since then, JFK would write to Post confessing his romantic feelings for her and trying to figure out if they could meet again.

“I might get a boat and sail around the Mediterranean for two weeks – with you as crew,” he wrote on June 28, 1954. He was already married to Jacqueline by then.

The two finally got together in 1955, spending a week together in a castle in Sweden. Von Post, who released a book about the affair in 1997, told 20/20, “I borrowed him for a week, a beautiful week that no one can take away from me, from that.”

A few months later, JFK wrote his last letter to Von Post, explaining that it was too complicated to continue. He wrote: “I just got word today – that my wife and sister are coming here. It will all be complicated the way I feel now – my Swedish Flicka. All I have done is sit in the sun and look and the Ocean and think of Gunilla … All Love, Jack.”

The bidding starts at $25,000 on legendaryauctions.com for this collection of letters and telegrams, but everyone is sure that this secret piece of history will go for a lot more. (ABC News)
