    -Franklin: No date. No place. Odd shape, torn from letter, overall 4" x 1.25".
    -Eleanor: No date. No place. One page. 6" x 4.5". This signature, along with closing, has been excised from a larger letter reads, "Very sincerely yours,/ Eleanor Roosevelt/ Mrs. Franklin D.

    -Eleanor: No date. No place. One blue-lined page. 6" x 3.5". Below the signature is typed "The above signature is authentic. A good friend Mrs. Addie Cowan was in her prime a teacher in a girls school on the Hudson River. Mrs. Roosevelt came on a visit at the school and while there Mrs. Cowan secured the above." A paper clip has left a ripple through the "lt" in the "Roosevelt" signature. Fine.
