dc.description.transcription"Dear Mr. Carter-- The pearl handled Cigarette-lighter -- ppisto is the most attractive smoking accessory I even saw and I am so thrilled to own such a glamorous article! I can practically forsee myself falling into the hands of the secret service if I take it out to use at some Washington gathering where the President is in attendance! It will be a wonderful "Conversation peice" whereever I use it as well as a most efficient lighter. Thank you so very much. I certainly enjoyed sitting by Mr. Carter at the luncheon last Monday and hope she has a wonderful trip to Europe. Our heart to you both, Bird Johnson"
