Vonnegut's letter to JFK

Vonnegut Volunteers for the JFK Campaign, 1960
In this short letter from 1960, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. volunteers to work for the campaign of candidate John F. Kennedy.
Writing in a plain style, Vonnegut describes his writing career up to that point, quickly glossing his work in PR for General Electric and as a reporter, and describing himself as “a freelance” of ten years’ experience. (Other jobs from that period of his life that he doesn’t mention: teacher for special-needs kids, owner of a Saab dealership.)
