Christmas Postcard from Illinois Senator Paul Simon
Christmas Postcard from Illinois Senator Paul Simon
TitleChristmas Postcard from Illinois Senator Paul Simon
SubjectLegislator--[Illinois]--[1967]--Christmas cards; Simon, Paul, --[1928-2003]
DescriptionThis is a postcard Christmas greeting from Senator Paul Simon for the Christmas of 1967. The postcard is addressed to Ms. Esther Webb at the Wither's Public Library. The back of the card reads: Greetings! This Christmas Shelia is six and a first-grader. She loves school. Martin is three and into everything. The two of us co-authored Protestant-Catholic Marriages Can Succeed, which came out in September, Jeanne's first book and Paul's fourth. Paul has just returned from a trip to South Vietnam and is being mentioned as a possible U.S. Senate Candidate. Jeanne's most recently acquired skill is camel-riding, picked up on a trip we took through Europe and Israel in July. Christmas is an appropriate time to recall that in Bethlehem and most of the world, poverty and misery continue to be man's lot. Our Christmas becomes more meaningful as we remember this. Sincerely, Paul and Jeanne. Senator and Mrs. Paul Simon 306 East Market Street Troy, Illinois 62294.
