Vernon Place Methodist Church.” At that service President Johnson had joined the congregation in singing the hymns, “Now Thank We All Our God” and “America the Beautiful”. Later that same day gave a Thanksgiving message to the nation calling for a “new American greatness” to emerge from the tragedy of President Kennedy’s assassination.” With envelope. Includes 1½pp copy of letter to Johnson from Dr. Shirkey thanking him for the signed copy of the book and expressing positive thoughts about Johnson’s programs and Mrs. Johnson’s beautiful Washington.
