On the death of Sara D. Roosevelt's sister (FDR's Aunt)
Bottome, Phyllis (Phyllis Forbes Dennis)

British novelist and short story writer. Two page letter signed August 16, 1940 to Sara D. Roosevelt, mother of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, expressing her sympathy on the loss of Sara’s sister Deborah Delano Forbes. Nice content about referencing the fall of France and a Bottome’s husband being wounded in WWI. Mrs. Roosevelt has written “acknowledged” in the upper left.Interesting piece for the FDR specialist. [#4673]
