    Did the autopen exist at that time. I can't see FDR personally signing a letter like that unless it was someone he knew personally.

    All glory is fleeting.

    A valid assumption for more modern Presidents. but FDR did send a lot of those types of letters out (I assume if he was asked by someone to do it). I have a letter sent by FDR to my great-grandfather.

    Not autopen, and not sure on secretarial, but might be real. Do some googling to get examples of his sec. sigs.

  • Looks real after viewing his signature

  • Looks good to me. There are a lot of white house stationary letters out there signed by FDR.
