This note is possibly addressed to Harry Hooker, who was Roosevelt's longtime friend and attorney. Written only a few years after FDR's death (1945), the former first lady was still politically active, as this letter illustrates:

"I have just been officially notified that I am to be again appointed as a delegate to the General Assembly of the United Nations which meets in Paris. I shall have to sail on September 13th. In view of this, could you and Nancy come up here in September 4th to stay over Labor Day? I would like to have a birthday party for you and Elliott before I leave! [stroke of exclamation point drawn in with pen]. Affectionately, [signed] Eleanor."
