What makes this an extraordinary FDR signed letter is that he handwrites a personal note to the end of the letter. FDR RARELY handwrote anything
In this typed letter mentioning Archbishop James Roosevelt Bayley, FDR adds the following handwritten sentence: "As you probably know the Archbishop was my father's cousin and close friend." James Roosevelt Bayley (1814-1877) was the first Bishop of Newark, New Jersey, eighth Archbishop of Baltimore, Maryland, and author of A Brief Sketch of the Early History of the Catholic Church on the Island of New York.
