A note President John F. Kennedy wrote to one of his mistresses right before his assassination is now being auctioned off.

The Daily Mail newspaper in Great Britain reports Kennedy is believed to have written the letter in October 1963 – just a month before he was murdered in Dallas. In the letter, Kennedy pleads with Mary Pinchot Meyer to come visit him in Cape Cod or Boston and lets her know how desperate he is to see her.

'Why don’t you leave suburbia for once – come and see me – either here – or at the Cape next week or in Boston the 19th,' writes Kennedy in a letter posted on the Daily Mail’s website.

'I know it is unwise, irrational, and that you may hate it – on the other hand you may not – and I will love it.'

It is unknown whether the two met up before he died. Meyer was murdered a year later.

Kennedy and Meyer had first met at a dance while teens. He was attending boarding school in Connecticut and she was enrolled in school in Manhattan. Their relationship escalated and she remained his mistress up until he died.

Also up for auction is a letter written to Kennedy from a woman named Inga Arvad. 

"You do know – or don't you – that you are the person in this world I would rather see than anybody – or is that a little too much of an admission?" she says in a letter written to JFK while he was in the Naval Reserve. The letter was also posted on the Daily Mail's website.

"The affair between Kennedy and Arvad began in 1941 while he was just starting in the Navy Reserve,” the newspaper said. She was working as a columnist at the Washington Times-Herald.

People magazine reports online bidding for both letters and other Kennedy items will run June 16-23. For more information, visit www.rrauction.com.
