Mr. B.S. Carter President
National Association of Life Insurance Companies
Sheraton-Charles Hotel
New Orleans, Louisiana

I want to extend my best wishes to you on the occasion of your national convention. In our system of free enterprise, insurance holds a place of special importance and the services performed by American insurance can do much to carry forward our traditions of freedom. I also want to congratulate you on your good fortune in having Congressman Rains address your group and extend to all of you my very best wishes.

John F. Kennedy
