This is a letter addressed to my great grandfather and grandmother. My grandparents were Walter Graeme Eliot and Maude Stoutenburgh Eliot. It is from Franklin D. Roosevelt when he was governor. Franklin Roosevelt and Maud Stoutenburgh Eliot were members of St. James Episcopal Church in Hyde Park. They knew each other as members.
This was originally my great grandparents, passed down to my grandparents and then my parents and now i have it.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
