    Theodore Roosevelt Typed Letter Signed. One page on White House letterhead, 7" x 9", Washington, D. C., September 16, 1907, to Senator Reed Smoot, Provo, Utah. The letter reads: "I have your letter of the 10th instant. You are a staunch friend of the Forest Service, in fact, as far as I have seen, you have been sound for the nation and the people on all questions that have come up; so what you say carries great weight with me." Included is the letter's original postal cover canceled in Oyster Bay, New York, Roosevelt's summer home. Light stains, soiling and creases. Good condition. Also included are three engraved White House invitations to Senator Smoot. Although the envelopes are mildly soiled, the contents remain in excellent condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
