Before he became President of the United States in 1933, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was Governor of New York. This 8” x 10.5” letter, on State of New York Executive Chamber letterhead, is dated July 1, 1929, right in the middle of the Prohibition period. The letter reads, “My dear Miss Betts: - I am awfully glad to read the book you gave me the other day at the County Fair Grounds. There is no question that in many ways this drug problem is just as serious as the temperance question. I shall hope to have the pleasure of seeing you again soon. Very sincerely yours, Franklin D. Roosevelt.” Roosevelt boldly signed his name in black fountain pen, grading an (“8/9”). The letter has the usual folds, with the bottom one crossing through the capital letters of Roosevelt’s signature, but not affecting it in any other way. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication, cert number X99032.
