Franklin D. Roosevelt: Typed Note Signed "FDR" as New York Governor. October 3, 1931. Warm Springs, Georgia. One page, 8" x 10.5". State of New York Executive Chamber letterhead. To "Major Farrell and Captain Brandt". FDR writes: "Memorandum for Major Farrell and Captain Brandt/ I should much appreciate it if this man Mr. Harvey Kingsley could be taken on as a foreman. He is just the kind we need. He has been under Mr. Brown for many years. He is, of course, now out of work./ Would you drop me a line if and when he can be employed?/ FDR". This memorandum would illustrate FDR's personal attention to the more mundane matters of state government, and his compassion in hiring Mr. Kingsley who obviously has been affected by the worsening tide of the Great Depression. With the usual fold creases, and filing holes on the left margin, otherwise with a bold signature in very good condition.
