On official Doubleday stationery, Jackie writes back to a hopeful writer, kindly refusing her work for publication. It reads in full: "Thank you for sending the proposal, PROFILES: The Great Personalities of the World by Hamilton A. Stewart. Although it is an interesting idea, I am sorry to say that we do not feel enthusiastic enough about its prospects here at Doubleday and we have decided against making an offer for publication. I am returning the material to you herewith, thanks and best wishes for placing it successfully."
After her husband's assassination, Jackie married Aristotle Onassis and went to work as a book editor, first at Viking Press and then at Doubleday Publishing House. She remained at Doubleday up until her cancer diagnosis, when she became too ill to continue working. Minor bumping to corners, with a clear and bold signature. From the collection of Ron Hoskins, assassinologist.
