Oswald's Mom: "There was indeed a conspiracy November 22-24, 1963", to Sam Erwin
Autograph letter signed on stationary card stock, 5.25" x 3.75", signed by Marguerite Oswald as " Marguerite C. Oswald, mother of Lee Harvey Oswald". Accompanied by the original hand addressed mailing envelope to "Senator Sam Erwin Jr, Senate Office Bldg, Washington D.C., 20515". The post mark is present but faded, appears to be 1973. Near fine condition, with a small paper shear to the verso of the card, not affecting the writing. From the collection of Ron Hoskins, assassinologist.
On November 25, 1963, the nation’s gaze was transfixed by the horse-drawn caisson and final burial of President John F. Kennedy. But in the shadow of this grim but stirring procession—on that same Monday—Lee Harvey Oswald was quietly buried in Fort Worth, Texas.
After a quick, makeshift service, Marguerite barely missed a beat before stepping up to a television camera: "Lee Harvey Oswald, my son, even after his death, has done more for his country than any other living human being." Meanwhile, she espoused conspiracy theories. What drove Marguerite is unclear, however it was known she was aggressively after money and publicity. When money ran low, she was known to have sold a letter, document or an article of clothing connected to Oswald. She would even be found on Dealey Plaza, selling autographed business cards to tourists for five dollars: Marguerite Oswald, mother of Lee Harvey Oswald.
This letter written to Senator Sam Erwin (of later Watergate fame), reaffirms Marguerite's position that the assassination of Kennedy was indeed shrouded in conspiracy. Her letter is simple and the point:
"There was indeed a conspiracy November 22-24, 1963"
A fantastic piece for a collector of JFK history.
