Franklin Roosevelt signs a typed letter to a constituent’s opinion on liquor.

Responds to Glover’s “opinion on the liquor questions, which is a problem of major importance” – prohibition, of course.  He goes on, “As for myself, I can only say that I am as Governor of New York, obliged to give that office all my time and energy and thought.”  But commenting on the upcoming presidential election, he states, “I feel, however, that whoever is nominated by the Democratic Party will be a progressive and a leader, able to contribute constructively to leading the country out of the morass in which it seems to be at present.”

It was he, of course, who was nominated in Chicago on the fourth ballot.
