    RR Auction
    A letter written by JFK to a purported lover is being sold in an online auction that starts June 16.

    An intimate letter written by John F. Kennedy to a purported paramour seeking to set up a liaison is one of several Kennedy-related items being sold at auction.

    The four-page letter to Mary Pinchot Meyer was written about a month before his assassination. It's signed simply "J."

    It reads in part: "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." It goes on to say that such a meeting is "unwise" and "irrational."

    The online sale is being held by Boston-based RR Auction starting June 16.
