    -To: John Knight, Arcade, New York.
    -With the usual fold creases, else very good with a bold FDR signature.

    A very historic invitation letter by FDR to one of his leading Republican opponents in the state legislature, Senator John Knight, Republican Majority Leader of the New York State Senate. FDR writes: "Dear Senator:/ Before leaving on the further trip of inspection I wish to renew the invitation that you join me enroute at any point that may be convenient to you. In the absence of any interruption whatever a splendid opportunity presents itself to go over these matters of state in which we are all so intensely interested./ With kind regards, I am/ Sincerely yours,/ Franklin D. Roosevelt". This letter represents FDR's attempts at working with the Republican opposition in overcoming special interests in the creation of a major new water navigation route to the Midwest United States, as well as the public generation of electric power.
