Legendary President of the United States of America, THEODORE ROOSEVELT autograph letter signed on mourning stationery written shortly after the death of his wife, Alice – and his mother, both of whom died on the same day. Roosevelt writes to a Chicago doctor regarding legislative documents, and signs the letter with a handsome full signature "Theodore Roosevelt". Also included is the original envelope which the letter was enclosed in addressed in Roosevelt's hand.



UNCONDITIONALLY GUARANTEED GENUINE. Sale includes accompanying original COA from the highly-respected JSA (James Spence Authentication) who have thoroughly examined the autograph and certify its authenticity.



Single page autograph letter signed on black bordered mourning stationery, 4.5" x 7". Dated "New York May 26th", accompanied by the original autographed mailing envelope post marked "May 28". The pencil notation on the envelope reading "Theodore Roosevelt" is in an unknown hand. The letter is near fine with a single horizontal fold. 


Roosevelt writes to Horace Starkey: 

"The Legislature having adjourned I regret deeply that it is out of my power at present to send you the documents you wish; but I will try to get them to you as soon as the Clerk of the lower House returns".
