President Relaxes in Palm Beach

Dec. 8, 1961 - President Kennedy relaxed at his father’s beach house in Palm Beach, Fla., today after three days of speech-making in New York and Florida. He swam in the pool at the house, rested, and read documents brought with him from Washington. The President went out once to attend a 10 a.m. mass at St. Edward’s Roman Catholic Church for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. He was accompanied by David F. Powers (right), a White House aide.
