    Description

    Franklin D. Roosevelt: Typed Letter Signed as New York Governor.
    -June 13, 1932, Warm Springs, Georgia. One page, 8" x 10.5". State of New York Executive Chamber letterhead.
    -To: Charles K. Horwitz, New York, New York.
    -With the usual fold creases, soiling, a few chips at the margins, staple holes in upper right corner, and mounting remnants on the verso, otherwise with a bold FDR signature in very good condition.

    FDR writes: "Dear Mr. Horwitz:-/ I have been very glad to write to Dr. Johnson as per enclosed, and I hope much he can do something./ Very sincerely yours,/ Franklin D. Roosevelt". Dr. Johnson was one of the pioneers of the Georgia Warm Springs Foundation and it is very likely that FDR was writing to Mr. Horwitz concerning a Warm Springs Foundation-related issue, though his mind was undoubtedly preoccupied with his recent nomination for the Presidency.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
