    Description

    Franklin D. Roosevelt: Autograph Note Signed "FDR" as President.
    -No date or place. One page. 5" x 8". Lined paper. In pencil.
    -To: Henry Wallace, Vice President.
    -Paper slightly toned with a central vertical and horizontal fold crease. Small area of loss at the top left corner not affecting text. Very good.

    FDR pencils a quick note to his Vice President gently urging him to speak at an upcoming meeting of the Federal Home Owners Loan Board. He writes: "Henry Wallace/ Fed. Home Owners Loan Bd./ Regional Meeting in/ Winston Salem - NC./ April 2-11/ Can V. P. speak?/ I hope so [underlined]/ FDR". The Home Owners Loan Act was one of FDR's New Deal programs designed to stimulate building, refinance mortgages and prevent foreclosures. An interesting document giving some insight in how FDR dealt with his senior cabinet members.
