Description

    Franklin D. Roosevelt: Typed Letter Signed as New York Governor.
    -March 19, 1931. Albany, New York. One page, 8" x 10.5". State of New York Executive Chamber letterhead.
    -To: Norris C. Bakke, Sterling, Colorado.
    -With the usual fold creases, uneven toning, else very good with a bold FDR signature.

    An interesting letter with intriguing content in which FDR responds to a letter from Norris Bakke, a constituent of Colorado Senator Edward Prentiss Costigan informing him of an upcoming lunch date with the Senator and assuring Bakke that "no possible political expediency will ever influence my acts, official or unofficial, when the question of what is right or what is wrong is involved." One wonders what concerns Bakke had expressed about Senator Costigan in his letter to FDR.
