About This Item

New York, 1948. One page, on stationery of Val-Kill Cottage, Hyde Park, Duchess Co., New York. 8vo. Fine, in red morocco-backed custom folding box. One page, on stationery of Val-Kill Cottage, Hyde Park, Duchess Co., New York. 8vo. This note is possibly addressed to Harry Hooker, who was Roosevelt's longtime friend and attorney. Written only a few years after FDR's death (1945), the former first lady was still politically active, as this letter illustrates:

"I have just been officially notified that I am to be again appointed as a delegate to the General Assembly of the United Nations which meets in Paris. I shall have to sail on September 13th. In view of this, could you and Nancy come up here in September 4th to stay over Labor Day? I would like to have a birthday party for you and Elliott before I leave! [stroke of exclamation point drawn in with pen]. Affectionately, [signed] Eleanor." Blanche Wiesen Cook, Eleanor Roosevelt, v. 1 (1992)
