    Franklin & Eleanor Roosevelt: Signatures.

    -Franklin: No date. No place. Odd shape, torn from letter, overall 4" x 1.25".
    -Eleanor: No date. No place. One page. 6" x 4.5". This signature, along with closing, has been excised from a larger letter reads, "Very sincerely yours,/ Eleanor Roosevelt/ Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt/ Assistant Director". The letter was written to Mrs. Evelyn H. Allen of Hollywood, California. Fine.
    -Eleanor: No date. No place. One blue-lined page. 6" x 3.5". Below the signature is typed "The above signature is authentic. A good friend Mrs. Addie Cowan was in her prime a teacher in a girls school on the Hudson River. Mrs. Roosevelt came on a visit at the school and while there Mrs. Cowan secured the above." A paper clip has left a ripple through the "lt" in the "Roosevelt" signature. Fine.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
