Franklin D. Roosevelt typed letter signed, dated 27 July 1928 to his physical therapist Helena Mahoney. This is shortly after FDR delivered his famous speech at the 1928 Democratic National Convention, where he stood at the podium without crutches in support of the nominee Al Smith. Helena Mahoney helped FDR prepare for the speech, and their relationship during this crucial year of 1928 was even documented in the 2005 film ''Warm Springs''.

Single page letter on FDR's personalized stationery reads in part, ''Dear Hony: Glad to...know that the patients are so much better. / I have not heard the rumor that Mrs. Hovey and Miss Plastridge are going to take my house!...All well here and up to my neck in work - this office, law office, Democratic Executive Committee, fifty letters a day, Warm Springs contributions, and forty other things on the side. I expect to survive until I get back about September 15th. / Missy telephones that she feels practically all right again...I am writing Mr. C.P. Hubbard to ask him if he can take back that bath tub...[signed] FDR''. Single page measures 7.25'' x 10.5''. Folds, else near fine condition.
