1956 - A note from the capital of our country
In October of 1956, the Ellsworth fifth grade class received an envelope from Washingon D. C. that appeared to be from somebody special, because the return address said White House. The postage stamp even had a photo of the White House. What was inside this envelope?
Inside that envelope was a note of thanks from President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
I am grateful for your message and deeply appreciateyour thoughtfulness.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
