Franklin D. Roosevelt sends a typed letter of thanks for the letter and hope that George Lawton Jr. feels better soon.
Typed Letter Signed: "Franklin D Roosevelt" as President, 1p, 6¾x8¾. Washington, D.C., 1934 November 14. On White House stationery to George Lawton, Jr., Newport, Rhode Island. In full: "It was very nice of you to write to me. I am sorry you have been ill, but do hope you will soon be much better. I send you my very best wishes." In the year he wrote this letter, President Franklin D. Roosevelt had signed the Gold Reserve Act (January 1934), which outlawed circulation and private possession of U.S. gold coins with the exception of collector coins. The Act, which took the U.S. off the gold standard, was implemented in an attempt to stem the Great Depression, which had left millions out of work. Roosevelt's "New Deal" programs would also include the establishment of Social Security (August 14, 1935, just nine months after he signed this letter) and the creation of jobs through such programs as the Public Works Administration (PWA). Encapsulated. Lightly creased with folds, light vertical fold at the "F" of Franklin. Lightly soiled at blank areas. Overall, fine condition.
