    Franklin D. Roosevelt: Autograph Letter Signed "FDR".
    -October 28, 1927. Warm Springs, Georgia. One page. 6" x 7". On Warm Springs, Georgia letterhead.
    -Bold and bright with two filing holes along the left margin one of which affects the "D" of "Dear" in the salutation and an old horizontal fold crease in the center of the page. Near fine.

    A short letter written entirely in FDR's hand that likely deals with some business of the Warm Springs Foundation. It reads: "Dear Mr. Crowley/ Thanks for the cheque $500/ which came just after I had/ written you about it yesterday./ Yours/ FDR". The letter bears the Roosevelt & O'Connor docket stamp in the upper right corner. FDR rarely used the Warm Springs, Georgia letterhead, making this example rather rare.
