Presentation copy, inscribed to Eleanor Roosevelt by David Kahn and Thomas Sugrue on the flyleaf. Segrue writes:
"I dared not inject my own opinions into this record of Colonel Starling, but I was happy to tug at the historical garment hem of the only President I rank with my greatest hero - Jefferson - your husband, Franklin D. Roosevelt - Sincerely, Thomas Sugrue 3/9/46."
Kahn, who was a mutual friend of Roosevelt and Sugrue and who encouraged the book's production (see page xvi of the introduction — “without his enthusiasm, stimulation, aid and support, it could not have been completed”), writes: "To Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt: - The story of a faithful follower of your 'sainted' husband - to which I add my appreciation to you for your confidence and friendship. - David E. Kahn."
