    Franklin D. Roosevelt, one page, quarto, State of New York Executive Chamber, Albany, New York, with interesting personal content where FDR acknowledges that he too is a "collector" of autographs! The letter, written from Warm Springs, Georgia, is dated December 9, 1930. FDR writes: "Dear Mr. Brassil:/ I am very glad indeed to autograph the air mail envelopes sent to me by you and Mr. Fenn and I have mailed them from Albany. I too am a collector./ Very sincerely yours,/ Franklin D. Roosevelt." FDR signs his name very boldly in brown ink. The transmittal envelope is also included. A very neat letter where FDR acknowledges his own proclivities as a collector of autographs.
