Lot 46: TLS, one page, 7.25 x 10.5, Fidelity and Deposit Company of Maryland letterhead, April 12, 1928. Letter to then-Senator of New York Robert Wagner, in part: "Things in the South seem to be coming along fairly well and I am taking the attitude that it is best to keep things pretty quiet and not stir up any violent pro–Smith movement. That, I know conforms with the advice of Southern colleagues and I am very certain that for at least another month it is the right course. I get back to New York May 1st and I hope to see you soon after that." In fine condition, with staples holes and some surface loss along top edge, and horizontal mailing fold passing through portions of the signature. On the referral of presidential candidate and former New York Governor Al Smith, Roosevelt joined the democratic ticket in the 1928 New York state election and defeated Albert Ottinger in the race for governor. RR Auction's Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction 453 Sunday, 17th May 2015 Estimate: $400-600
