Typed Letter Signed [TLS]

The White House, Washington D. C. August 1, 1941. 10.5" 8", 1 pp. SIGNED "Franklin D Roosevelt". Roosevelt begins the letter to Luther C. Steward, President of the National Federation of Federal Employees, by sending regrets that he is unable to attend the biennial convention. Then he includes encouragement that the organization is on track to fulfill their civic and organizational responsibilities to the Nation. The National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE) is a national union, currently representing approximately 110,000 blue and white collar government workers across the United States. Ratifying its constitution on September 17, 1917, NFFE was the first union to represent federal employees. Luther Corwin Steward took the helm of the organization shortly after its initiation and held the longest tenure of any NFFE President from 1918 until 1955. Acceptable, with generational wear. Creases and several edge tears with age fade, tide spots and marks. Item #3290

"Your letter is heartening to me because of the assurance that Government employees will accept their responsibilities in a spirit of service rather than self-seeking, and will continue to bear witness to the fact that good government grows out of the will of the people and not by imposition upon the people." - FDR.
