John William McCormack, 1891-1980.  U.S. Representative from Massachusetts; Speaker of the House of Representatives.  Typed Letter Signed, one page, 8" x 10½", May 3, 1955, on stationery of the Congress of the United States, House of Representatives, Office of the Majority Leader, Washington, D.C.

McCormack, a future Speaker of the House, mentions a dinner in honor of the current Speaker, Sam Rayburn of Texas, the longest-serving Speaker in history:  “The Testimonial Dinner to Sam Rayburn was a great success.  Sam Rayburn richly deserved the tribute that he received."

The letter has normal mailing folds and tape stains across the corners from prior mounting.  It has an irregular vertical crease along the right side that barely touches the "k" in the signature.  Overall the letter is in fine condition.
