A essay saved by a teacher of John Kennedy Jr. While a student at the Collegiate School in New York City in 1975. This is a fascinating insight into what Kennedy thought about the many accidents and incidents he was having.

The essay is also accompanied by a handwritten and signed letter from his mother Jaqueline Kennedy wrote in part: "All Over Town " sounds like a great idea for a large group of boys with spring fever".

John Kennedy Jr., son of President John F. Kennedy, died in 1999 when a plane he was piloting crashed into the Atlantic Ocean. He was 38. His wife, Carolyn Kennedy, and sister in law, Lauren Bessette, also died in the crash.

The essay follows a format that will be familiar to many who remember their grade school assignments, with a thesis statement and then evidence to support it. For evidence of his clumsy nature, Kennedy described a time falling into a campfire, putting his foot in the spokes of a bicycle and falling off a cliff. The only thing that kept him from being “splattered” was a “five-inch deep puddle,”

Kennedy wrote. “I could go on for pages about accidents but I’ll spare the reader the pleasure,” he wrote toward the end of the essay. The teacher scored the essay as a 79, with many of the missing points from spelling errors. He also left notes asking Kennedy to write out numbers; Kennedy appeared to have used the bottom of the last page to try out potential spellings of “exist.” The Essay is 3 pages long and was written in 1975 when he was 15.
