Transcript of Letter from President Dwight D. Eisenhower to John Beaulieu
[Handwritten]: Reviewed & opened.
October 24, 1956
OCT 31 1956
I can’t tell you how pleased I was to receive the letter you wrote me recently in Braille. [Handwritten markings: xppf28-D “B”] I certainly admire the skill that you must have had to master such a difficult art.
It was nice of you to send me a little speech to help win the election. Your good luck wishes for November mean a lot to me too, and I am very grateful to you for them. I wish I were able to write back to you in Braille, also, but I am sure that one of your teachers will be happy to read this to you. [Handwritten markings: xppf27-B-1]
I hope you’re enjoying your schoolwork and are taking advantage of the fine opportunity that you must have in Watertown. Many thanks again for being so thoughtful. [Handwritten markings: xppf22-C]
With best wishes,
