    Franklin D. Roosevelt: Autograph Note Signed to His Son.
    -No date. No place. One page, 5.5" x 9".
    -To: His son, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr.
    -With some soiling and toning, ragged left margin, and tape remnants at the top corners, else very good.

    In FDR's own hand in its entirety, an autograph note signed to his son and namesake, FDR, Jr. in black fountain pen: "For Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr. with a great deal of love from his Old Man./ Franklin D. Roosevelt". A deeply personal note that one would surmise accompanied a gift on some long forgotten special occasion. Though many more important FDR documents are extant, the words he penned in more intimate moments are fewer in number and should be treasured all the more.
