    Description

    Franklin D. Roosevelt: Typed Letter Signed as President.
    -November 29, 1940. Washington, D. C. One page, 7" x 8.75". White House letterhead.
    -To: Mrs. C. Rollin (Paula) Larrabee, Washington, D.C.
    -With the usual fold creases, with some soiling and toning, else very good.

    FDR writes: "Dear Paula:/ Thank you for your two notes and for returning the three little museum pieces!/ I am sorry that your couldn't get to Hyde Park for Election but perhaps some other time./ Affectionately,/ Franklin D. Roosevelt". It would seem that Mrs. Larrabee was known to FDR and perhaps she and her husband were occasional visitors to FDR's Hyde Park mansion.

    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.
