    Franklin D. Roosevelt: Typed Document Signed as New York Governor.
    -April 14, 1930. Albany, New York. One page, 8" x 10.5". State of New York Executive Chamber letterhead.
    -With creases and light soiling, otherwise with a bold FDR signature in very good condition.

    A document signed as Governor of New York vetoing a bill compelling the State of New York to take care of a city street because the State owns property abutting it. The document reads: "Memorandum filed with Assembly Bill Introductory Number 1889, Printed Number 2150 entitled: 'AN ACT in relation to the supervision and maintenance of Proctor avenue in the city of Ogdensburg.'/ NOT APPROVED/ This bill compels the State to take care of a city street because the State owns property abutting thereon./ This would be an exceedingly inadvisable precedent to establish because, if the principle of this bill were correct, the State would have to maintain streets in all cities in which it owned a hospital./ For that reason, the bill is disapproved./ Franklin D. Roosevelt". FDR executing his executive authority as Governor of New York to veto a legislative bill he deemed inadvisable, a very interesting and historic item.
