Albany, New York: , Aug. 1st 1930. Autograph verse signed in full, "Eleanor Roosevelt". Buff card stock imprinted "Executive Mansion / Albany, New York", 6 x 3-1/2", written on face side only. Stripe of light browning across middle; one surface crease. Very good. Mrs. Roosevelt writes:"There was a young fellow called Joe,Who thought he was coming too slow,But he made up his mind to be the whole showAnd now there is a corporal named JoeEleanor Roosevelt"The identity of the recipient is unknown. Only one other piece of verse written by Mrs. Roosevelt has surfaced on the market and that at auction some ten years ago fetching $1,000the buyer's premium. While limericks generally have a racy reputation, Mrs. Roosevelt obviously preferred a more sedate tone. A sweet compliment to a young friend (or employee), the verse suggests the warmth, tact and consideration which won Eleanor so many strong friends and supporters through her many years in public life. A rare form of autograph material for this extraordinary woman, from early in her public career.
