8 January 1964: Gordon to O’Connor

“When I reached my uncle’s house,” Gordon wrote to O’Connor, “my cousin, Manny, warned me not to mention Kennedy’s name. My aunt doesn’t like him much better than she liked Roosevelt. Those members of my family have all turned Republican. I always feel like saying, ‘But you haven’t got enough money to turn Republican’.”

from The Letters of Flannery O’Connor to Caroline Gordon
