    Interesting letter on State of New York, Executive Chamber, Albany stationery, dated May 10, 1932, as FDR was in high gear in his first campaign for President of the United States, with great references to the labor movement, to Mr. W. E. Myers of Cincinnati, Ohio. FDR writes "My dear Mr. Myers:/ Thank you for sending me the copy of ‘The Labor Advocate' of April 16. I read the marked editorial with deep interest and appreciate your comments on my own recent stand./ Very sincerely yours,/ Franklin D. Roosevelt." A terrific letter while FDR was still Governor of New York with reference to FDR's interest in the labor movement before becoming President of the United States.
