Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945) - 32. President of the United States
Typed letter signed “Franklin D. Roosevelt”. July 26th, 1920,
on his embossed The Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Washington letterhead. One
page, 8.0 x 9.0 inch. Addressed to Honorable James D. Phelan, U.S.S. in
Washington D.C. The letter in full: “My dear Senator: It was awfully good of
you to telegraph me on July 6th, and I greatly appreciate your kind
thought in wishing me success at the coming election. I am proud to be on the
ticket with Governor Cox, and I am sure that the young men of the country, and
all of the progressive element will not fail to realize that Governor Cox is
the best equipped man in the country to cope with the great problems now
confronting the nation. It is good to have the support and interest of men like
yourself, and I am counting on it during the coming campaign. I understand that
the plans call for my visiting the West Cost again, and I hope to have the pleasure
of seeing you at that time. With kindest regards, believe me, Sincerely yours,”
Closely trimmed at the top and with tape traces at the upper corners, as well
as mounting traces at the top on the reverse. None of this affects the text. The
signature is bold, Roosevelt wrote a postscript at the end of the letter “More
power to your arm!” This was an English drinking term of encouragement to one
imbibing from a large container slung over his shoulder. James Middleton Cox
(1870-1957) was the 46th and 48th Governor of Ohio, U.S. Representative from
Ohio and Democratic candidate for President of the United States in the
election of 1920. In the 1920 presidential election Cox was defeated by Warren
G. Harding. Cox's running mate was the Assistant Secretary of the Navy and
later President - Franklin D. Roosevelt. A fine example from an important
period in FDR’s career and with excellent content. Comes with my Franklin D.
Roosevelt autograph study.
