As Governor-Elect, he regrets that he cannot attend a tribute to the creators of the Bronx River Parkway.
Typed Letter Signed: "Franklin D. Roosevelt" as Governor-Elect, 1p, 7¼x10½. Warm Springs, Ga., 1928 December 4. To Walter Russell, Esq., President, The Society of Arts and Sciences, New York City. In full: "I am delighted to learn that the Society will give medals of award to those responsible for the Bronx River Parkway. It is a well deserved tribute. I wish much that I might come to the dinner on January 24th, but I doubt if I shall be able to leave Albany at all during January. I cannot tell definitely until I get there." RUSSELL was President of the Society of Arts and Sciences from 1927-1935. The Society of Arts and Sciences was the cultural extension of the Twilight Club, which awarded medals in recognition of genius in the arts and sciences. In the 1920s, with the urging of the Twilight Club, the Bronx River Parkway was built, beautifying New York and becoming a model for the rest of the country. Slightly creased. Folds. Horizontal fold touches signature. Light paper clip impression at upper edge, light red pencil check mark at lower blank margin. Overall, fine condition.
