-To: Horace J. Curry, Hyde Park, New York.
-With fold creases, else very good with a bold FDR signature.
Franklin D. Roosevelt writes to a Hyde Park, New York neighbor from Warm Springs, Georgia only seven days after being elected Governor of New York for the first time. This is a very rare letter because it was written on Democratic National Committee stationery, personalized for FDR as a "Member of the Executive Committee." Prior to assuming the Governorship of New York, during this period FDR's letters were normally written on either Fidelity and Deposit Company of Maryland or Roosevelt & O'Connor letterhead. FDR writes: "My dear Horace:-/ Very many thanks for your telegram of congratulations. It was mighty good of you to think of me./ I am very grateful for the fine vote which Dutchess County gave me./ I shall hope to see you when I get North./ Very sincerely yours,/ Franklin D. Roosevelt."
