Franklin D. Roosevelt typed letter signed, writing on 5 June 1928 to his physical therapist Helena Mahoney, who was also the head therapist at Warm Springs. Composed on his personalized stationery, Roosevelt writes in part, ''...Many thanks for the check from the Carpenters. It is very exciting. / I talked to Missy on the telephone and told her not to sell her house for less than $6,000 unfurnished. On this price she would only make about $500 profit. / Tell Mrs. Jasper not to worry about her lease. It is good for the whole of the time stated in it. / A letter from Curt says the Lovelace cottage will be finished June 16th. / You are an Angel...[signed] F.D.R.'' At this time, Helena Mahoney was helping Roosevelt prepare for an important speech - without the use of crutches, at the National Democratic Convention that summer, where he was introduced to a national audience. Single page letter measures 7.25'' x 10.5''. Folds, else near fine condition.
