    Herbert Hoover Typed Letter Signed Referencing the 1929 Stock Market Crash. One page, 7.25" x 10.25", April 27, 1933. A letter addressed to Lawrence Richey, in part: "Would you see Senator Lenroot and ask him if you can have copies of his complete file of correspondence. What I wish is to demonstrate my complete anticipation and fears of the boom which developed in 1928-29. Lenroot will recall that I visited with him on the subject, and through him sounded a warning against the policies of the Board, which turned out as disasterously [sic] as I anticipated." With holographic emendations by Hoover and signed "Herbert Hoover" in black ink. From the Estate of Malcolm S. Forbes.

    Condition: Usual mail folds, two holes punched along left vertical edge. Otherwise very fine.

    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.
