An artifact that you might find interesting...

I am spending some time with my father this summer.  He has a lot of "stuff" - some important, some not - that's part of the reason for my being here.  So, amongst everything else, there is this framed letter from Eleanor Roosevelt to my grandmother, written in December of 1939.
Apparently typed and written by Mrs. Roosevelt herself.  My grandmother was an activist all of her life and always an advocate for peace.  I am sure she was concerned about the ominous signs leading to WWII, penning a letter to the White House about her concern.  The letter is in an archival quality frame, behind UV protected glass.
