Caroline Kayoes Jackie Letters Sale

CAROLINE KENNEDY puts a stop to the Dublin college hawking her mom Jackie’s intimate letters.

Caroline, the last surviving heir of Camelot, stopped her mother's letters from being auctioned saying she held copyright via inheritance.

Cash strapped school All Hallows College in Dublin, Ireland had attempted to put the letters on the auction after discovering the letter sent to her pal Father Joseph Leonard over a span of 15 years from 1950 to 1965.

Father Leonard had bequeathed his personal affects to the school upon his death.

In the 33 newly-discovered handwritten letters, Jackie confided about her suspicions about JFK's cheating, reservations over his political ambition and utter despair after his assassination.

The  Boston Globe revealed that Kennedy family attorneys contacted Sheppard's Irish Auction House on May 21 saying that the sale could not go forward based Caroline’s copyright ownership.

'It’s Caroline’s decision about what should happen,” Jackie's stepbrother Hugh D. Auchincloss told the Beantown tab.

Because the sale has been cancelled, the cash strapped school which expected  to reap $4 million from the Jackie letters has been forced to close after 172 years.
