FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT
This typed letter, signed by Roosevelt in 1933, is accompanied by a number of unsigned letters from others regarding a stein owned by Roosevelt Schuyler of the Corinthian Yacht Club of New York. It contains a number of handwritten edits in an unknown hand.
Typed letter signed: "Franklin D Roosevelt", 1 page, 6¾x8½ (1 sheet folded), on White House stationery. 1933 May 31. Addressed to the Honorable H. L. Roosevelt, The Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Navy Department, Washington, D.C. In full: "Dear Harry:- I think this stein should belong to you rather than me. It was sent by this lady and belonged to Robot Schuyler." This letter has several corrections in pencil, crossing out "was sent by this lady and" and crossing out the letter "t" in "Robot". H.L. Roosevelt's name has been filled in with a pen, and there are several corrections on the same line. These corrections were made in an unknown hand. Accompanied by: an autograph letter by Belle Parker of Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii and typed letters by H.L. Roosevelt, Lt. Commander A. S. Merrill and H.G. O'Neill, regarding an English-made stein made for M. Roosevelt Schuyler, commodore of the Corinthian Yacht Club of New York, and the engraving of FDR's facsimile signature on it. Roosevelt (1882-1945), the only American to win four presidential elections, led the nation out of the Great Depression (1929-1939). During his first "Hundred Days" in office as 32nd U.S. President (1933-1945), he stabilized the banking crisis and initiated New Deal programs that stressed economic relief, recovery and reform. To help "the forgotten man", Roosevelt introduced the Social Security and Fair Labor Standards acts. Anticipating U.S. entry into WWII (1939-1945), he encouraged production of wartime materials, initiated the draft and aided the British with his Lend-Lease Program. Roosevelt's role in devising Allied strategy helped assure military victories over Germany and Japan, and his support for the Manhattan Project led to the development of the atomic bomb. Lightly toned, soiled and creased. Roosevelt letter has been folded in half horizontally and unfolded. Other letters have staple holes and small tears in top edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
