FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT (1882 - 1945) often referred to by his initials FDR, was the 32nd President of the United States. He was a central figure of the 20th century during a time of worldwide economic crisis and world war. Elected to four terms in office, he served from 1933 to 1945 and is the only U.S. president to have served more than two terms. Franklin D. Roosevelt and Theodore Roosevelt were fifth cousins but were close. FDR's wife Eleanor Roosevelt was Theodore's orphaned niece who he gave away in marriage to "cousin Franklin" in 1905.

This wonderful letter was written to an autograph collector when FDR was V.P. of the Fidelity and Deposit Company of Maryland, almost a decade before he was elected President, and is dated December 29, 1924. The letter is in very good condition with some staining at top right and overall aging. It measures 7.25" x 10.5".
