The letters in von Post’s collection, which died in 2011, were written between 1955 and 1956 and were written when Kennedy was still a senator. The letters, written on the US senate letterhead, include reflections of the pair’s romantic trip to Sweden and the news that von Post is getting married. In response to von Post’s news of the marriage, Kennedy wrote in his letter, “I have to say I was saddened when I found out, in the end, you are not coming to the United States and you are marrying a farmer.” Kennedy said, “If you don’t get married, come (to the U.S.) because I’d like to see you. I had a great time with you last summer. A bright memory of my life… You’re great and I miss you.”
