FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT
The day the Moscow Conference opens, he thanks a Washingtonian for his watercolor.
Typed Letter Signed: "Franklin D. Roosevelt" as President, 1p, 7x8¾. The White House, Washington, 1942 August 12. To Ray Baker Harris, Washington, D.C. In full: "Many thanks for the water-color. I am especially pleased to have it for my collection. My best wishes go to you with this little note." Four days earlier, on August 8, 1942, President Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill agreed that General Eisenhower should lead Operation Torch, the Allied invasion of French North Africa that would begin exactly three months later. The day FDR wrote this letter, his representative, W. Averell Harriman, opened a four-day conference in Moscow with Churchill and Soviet Premier Joseph Stalin. On August 13, 1942, Soviet Premier Joseph Stalin drafted a memorandum to Churchill and Roosevelt opposing their decision not to invade Western Europe at that time. Mounting stains lightly show through to blank corners. Overall, fine condition.
