    Description

    Franklin D. Roosevelt: Autograph Note Signed "FDR" as President.
    -[May 19, 1933]. [Washington, D.C.] 4" x 2.75". White House card stock.
    -To: [Francis Perkins], Secretary of Labor.
    -Very good.

    Written by FDR only sixteen days after being inaugurated as the 32nd President of the United States of America. FDR writes: "Should I do anything?/ FDR". The note presumably accompanied a memorandum in which the new President needed some direction from his Secretary of Labor. The signed note is stamped as having been received in the Secretary of Labor's Office on March 20, 1933. A wonderful note from the newly inaugurated President to his newly sworn-in Secretary of Labor seeking direction from Ms. Perkins.
