Jimmy Carter Personal Handwritten "Long Lost Love Letter" To Jinx Drake on Personal Letterhead Dated 1-7-84 Featured in Nationwide Periodical in 1996 - This rare, amazing piece is a "love letter" written to a Georgia socialite named Jinx Drake, written by President Jimmy Carter. The letter is written on President Carter's personal letterhead, and will also come with the original, personal envelope. The letter is dated 1-7-84, three years after Carter left the White House. The letter was discovered in a box of books that was sold at a flea market, and was featured in a national publication on September 24th, 1996, (a copy of the article will be sent to the winning bidder). In the letter, Carter writes "I've felt frustrated that we haven't had any chance to continue our old intimacy the past few times we've seen eachother..". It is said that Jinx worked hard in President Carter's political campaigns, and that she was a longtime, intimate friend of both President Carter and his wife. Unfortunately, Ms. Drake tragically committed suicide the day after Christmas in 1995, after discovering that she had breast cancer in an advanced stage. This piece is truly the only one of its kind, and is a dream come true for a collector of this type of asset. This is a truly belongs in a museum, as it is an American tragedy story, suggesting scandal from one of the most beloved American Presidents of all time.
