    FDR Typed Letter Signed, "Franklin D Roosevelt", one page on New York Governor's letterhead, 7.25" x 9", Albany, New York, February 24, 1930, to Mr. H. M. Brehm, Appleton, Wisconsin. Responding to a request, the future president genially writes: "I wish much that I could find for you an autograph of Theodore Roosevelt when he was Governor but I fear there are none here in Albany except those all affixed to official letters and documents. As you probably know, the personal correspondence of Governors is taken with them when they leave office. I am returning this extremely interesting cover. You must have a fine collection." Typically nice, large FDR signature. Very fine condition.
