(1882 - 1945) Thirty-second President of the United States who instituted the "New Deal" programs and who led the United States through most of World War II. Fine content T.L.S. as Governor on official letterhead, 1p. 4to., Albany, Feb. 4, 1932, in part: "...It was pleasant to hear from a former correspondent, and one who, like myself, was a worker under our great war president [Woodrow Wilson]. You are very good to say what you do about my own prospects, but in spite of your success as a prophet before, what may happen next fall is very hard to predict...we hope that the Party will nominate a progressive leader behind whom we can all unite to help our much-distressed country return to sanity and stability. The sound principles of the Democratic Party are more important than the candidate...". Trimmed at top, and a bit soiled, else very good. Of course, F.D.R.'s party would nominate him shortly thereafter, and he would occupy the Oval Office the following year. The "prophet" was right!
