The lot also contains a small card signed Eleanor Roosevelt and a postal cover with her image as shown and a typed letter on White House stationery, dated January 23, 1936 sending regrets that the president cannot comply with an autograph request and signed M.A. LeHand.Marguerite "Missy" LeHand (1898 - 1944) was private secretary to former U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt for many years. She was rumored to have had an affair with Roosevelt who rewrote his will to leave half of his estate for "Missy", effectively cutting his children out.
 
Also included are autographs of the three vice-presidents who served under Roosevelt: Harry S. Truman-1945, James Garner 1933-41 and Henry Wallace 1941-45. Truman (as VP) is responding to a request to have he and his family return some cards with their autographs. Truman responds in typical fashion, " No cards enclosed--Harry S Truman", n.p. but surely Washington, D.C, Feb 8, 1945. Apparently Truman also underlined the request for emphasis.A typical Truman response-short and to the point.The letter is in good condition and Truman's writing is bold.A chance to own a Truman autograph that truly reflects the man.
The rest of the collection consists of ALL OF THE MEMBERS WHO SERVED IN THE CABINET (# 25 different individuals-some served in more than one cabinet post at different times) DURING FDR's FOUR ADMINISTRATIONS. All AUTOGRAPHS are on cards, some of which are from the branch of government they headed.Others are on small white cards of varying sizes but in almost every case they represent clear signatures from some type of pen.Names that will be familiar with the presidential history of that time are, among others, Hull, Ickes, Knox, Dern, Stettinius, Farley, Murphy, Roper, Wickard, Woodring and many others. In all total there are thirty five autographs in the collection. All cards are in good condition and they all show normal aging and toning.Here are a few of the cards.
