'Childlike innocence' of JFK's eldest sister Rosemary is revealed in unseen letters she wrote aged 20, three years before being forced to undergo a lobotomy
Rosemary Kennedy, John F. Kennedy's oldest sister, would have celebrated her 100th birthday today
New unseen letters reveal how she was a vivacious young woman prior to being left with a severe mental disability after having a lobotomy aged 23
The letters were written to Dorothy Smyth who looked after Rosemary while in Ireland and England in 1938
Smyth died in the 1960s, but her family kept the letters  according to her nephew, Michael Fisher who described them as holding a 'childlike innocence'
