    Franklin D. Roosevelt: Typed Letter Signed as New York Governor.
    -December 21, 1929. Albany, New York. One page. 8" x 10.5", Executive Chamber letterhead.
    -To: Rt. Rev. Francis J. McConnell, President, Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America.
    -Fine condition, light mailing folds, paperclip impression, type faded though signature bold and clear.

    FDR writes: "Dear Bishop McConnell:-/ I have your letter of the 20th, and I really do not dare to tell you definitely about the 4th of March. The probability is, however, that because it is so near the close of the Session, that I will not be able to come. Be assured that if there is any possibility of it, I shall be with you./ Very sincerely yours..." McConnell had held this position for about a year at the time of this letter. A liberal Methodist, his appointment as president of this council, consisting of representatives from twenty-eight Protestant denominations, was somewhat controversial.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
