    Franklin D. Roosevelt: Typed Letter Signed as New York Governor.
    -April 22, 1932. One page, 8" x 10.5". State of New York, Executive Chamber letterhead.
    -To: Mr. James J. Brennan, Marblehead, Massachusetts.
    -Original folds, light toning, else fine.

    Regarding his Massachusetts campaign for President, FDR writes to an early supporter, in full: "My dear Mr. Brennan:- This is just a line to express to you my appreciation for your splendid work and efforts in my behalf in Massachusetts. I feel certain that the voters will respond in a gratifying way to the splendid campaign which you have conducted. I am looking forward to the pleasure of meeting you personally in the very near future. Very sincerely yours, Franklin D. Roosevelt." As FDR would go on to win Massachusetts with only 50.64 percent of the popular vote in the general election, Massachusetts was a strategically significant state, and James Brennan would have been an important contact.
