Eleanor Roosevelt sends a typed letter trying to arrange a time to see her friend.
Typed Letter signed: "Eleanor Roosevelt", 1 p, 6x7. On personal letterhead. New York, New York, 1932 November 21. To Miss Belle Saltford, Poughkeepsie, N.Y. Written two weeks after her husband's election as President of the United States. In full: "How very sweet of you to write me such a nice note. I probably will not be in Hyde Park until the week-end after Thanksgiving as I expect to go to Warm Springs with the Governor. Do telephone me then and I will make every effort to see you. These are happy days but also terribly busy ones. I with us. I have missed her a great deal. Affectionately yours." When Anna Eleanor Roosevelt married her distant cousin, Franklin D. Roosevelt, in 1905, her uncle, President Theodore Roosevelt, gave her away. Eleanor (1884-1962) served as First Lady for 12 years and 39 days (March 4, 1933 until her husband's death of a cerebral hemorrhage on April 12, 1945), longer than any other woman. She had previously been First Lady of New York when FDR was Governor of the state (1929-1933). Eleanor later became known as "First Lady of the World" for her humanitarian efforts, including getting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the United Nations.
