In this letter dated August 1, 1969, the former first lady wrote to Stoughton "Your loyalty ... has meant so much to me and ... I am grateful for all you have done for our family." It was signed "always affectionately, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis" — the name she took in 1968 after her marriage to Aristotle Onassis.
