DescriptionWoodrow Wilson Typed Letter Signed "Woodrow Wilson". One page of a bifolium, 7" x 8.75", Washington, D.C.; October 1, 1917. Typed on official White House letterhead, to Grant Squires, a New York attorney and friend of Wilson's.
The letter reads: "I return the enclosed check because by an oversight you neglected to sign it. I am glad occasionally to catch a business man in such a slip. Pray do not feel that there is the least pack of appreciation of your offers of services. Certainly for my own part I appreciate them very deeply. The happy fact is that we are suffering from an embarrassment of riches and it is only now and again that we can find the proper niche even for the men we most admire." Accompanied by the original transmittal envelope. From the Estate of Malcolm S. Forbes.
Condition: Letter and envelope are lightly toned, darker around edges. Signature is clear.

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.View More Testimonials
