Auction: Discovery - 2637M Location: Marlborough Date / Time: February 14, 2013 10:00AM


Roosevelt, Sara (1854-1941) Autograph Note, Signed.
Single bifolium, heathered stationary with "Hyde Park Dutchess County" in raised blue print, and "Tel. & Tel. Poughkeepsie," four pages inscribed. To General Charles H. Sherrill (1867-1936), central fold. "[Illegible] told me that you wanted to see the President, so if you can come on Friday to lunch we shall be pleased to have you. Please don't tell anyone, as he has refused all visitors & has to leave here Friday evening. I have not bought the latest time table, but I think there is a good train which leaves New York at about eleven & reaches Poughkeepsie at 12:45, but you had better verify it. My car will be at the station. Love to Mrs. Sherrill. Thank you for your nice envelope of treasures. I so enjoyed reading them. Very sincerely yours, Sara Roosevelt."
Estimate $200-300
