Cleveland: 1936. unbound. 2 pages, 11 x 8.5 inches, law firm letterhead, Cleveland, October 20, 1936. Written to Frederick R. Coudert, international law attorney and political power broker, on the upcoming Presidential election, in small part: "I have found myself deeply troubled by the Presidential campaign. With the concentration of power in Washington, the encroachments of the executive upon legislative discussion, the vast wastefulness and extravagance in Federal expenditures and the unblushing use made of those expenditures for political purposes, I have not the least sympathy." Natural folds; light creasing along the bottom edge. Very good(+) condition.
