"We are numbed by the shock of Jack's death. Nothing we can say will console you. All we can do is to send you our best love." This brief note was written by British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan and his wife, but as this small book makes strikingly clear, response to President John F. Kennedy's assassination cut through strata of power and wealth. In fact, the outpouring of emotion was unprecedented: In the weeks following the November 1963 killing, more than 1,250,000 letters of sympathy were sent to former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy and her children. Dear Mrs. Kennedy contains letters from both the famous and the unknown; Americans and people abroad; adults and children. Taps sounding on Camelot.
