ELEANOR ROOSEVELT Eleanor Roosevelt sends a typed letter of thanks for letting her know about an article. Typed Letter Signed: “Eleanor Roosevelt”, 1p, 6×7. Hyde Park, New York, 1955 June 24. On letterhead of Val-Kill Cottage to “Dear George”. In full: “Thank you very much for your thoughtfulness in bringing to my attention the article written by Mr. Romulo. I had seen Mr. Romulo at a luncheon and he told me about his article which I read and found very good. I hope you are keeping well and enjoying the summer.” Carlos P. Romulo was the Ambassador of the Philippines to the U.S. from 1952-1961. He had served as Philippine Foreign Minister (1950-1951) and was President of the U.N. General Assembly from 1950-1951. Appointed by President Truman, ELEANOR ROOSEVELT had been a member of the U.S. delegation to the United Nations from 1945-1952. Val-Kill Cottage had been built as a retreat for Eleanor by FDR on his Hyde Park estate in 1925. She used it sparingly for many years, but moved into the stone cottage after President Roosevelt died in 1945. Eleanor had married her distant cousin, Franklin D. Roosevelt, in 1905 (her uncle, President Theodore Roosevelt, gave her away). She would serve as First Lady for 12 years and 39 days (March 4, 1933 until her husband’s death of a cerebral hemorrhage on April 12, 1945), longer than any other woman. Eleanor, who had previously been First Lady of New York when FDR was Governor of the state (1929-1933), later became known as “First Lady of the World” for her humanitarian efforts, including getting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the United Nations. Lightly creased and shaded. ¼x½-inch paper loss at upper right blank corner. Overall, fine condition. – Please contact us if you have any questions or require additional information. HFSID 175257
