Cleveland sends a letter of sympathy to a friend for the loss of their mother
Autograph Letter Signed: "Frances F. Cleveland Preston", 1½p, 5¼x6¾. Westland, Princeton, N.J., 1934 February 18. To Thomas P. Stulls of the Princeton Bank & Trust Co. In full: "I hope you will not consider it an intrusion if I send you a line of sympathy for the sorrow you have met in the loss of your mother. Mr. Preston has been passing through the same experience in these same weeks-and we know the sort of thing it means and feel that we would like you to know how sorry we are that you have been called upon to meet this grief & loss." On June 2, 1886, 21-year-old Frances Folsom married 49-year-old bachelor President Grover Cleveland in the White House. The daughter of his late law partner, Frances was 11-years-old when her father died and she became Cleveland's ward. Cleveland died in 1908 and on February 10, 1913, his 48-year-old widow married 32-year-old THOMAS J. PRESTON, Jr., Professor of Archaeology at Princeton University. Mrs. Preston died in 1947. Mr. Preston died in 1955. Mid-horizontal fold touches the upper loops of the "F","F" and "P" and "t" in Preston. Light diagonal stain touches 3 words. Otherwise, fine condition.
