TLS as president, one page, 6.5 x 7, White House letterhead, November 18, 1938. Letter to Basil O' Connor, in full: "I appreciate very much your writing me your recommendation of the jobs done by Mr. Lester W. Herzog, Works Progress Administrator, and Mr. H. P. C. Howe, local Works Progress Administration Director, in connection with the recent disaster on Long Island. I am passing your letters on to Harry Hopkins as I know he will be interested to have your opinion of the work done by Mr. Herzog and Mr. Howe." Double-matted and framed with a Pach Brothers portrait of FDR to an overall size of 18 x 13. In fine condition. On September 21, 1938, Long Island was hit by a category three hurricane that would soon become one of the deadliest and most powerful weather events to ever face the Mid-Atlantic coast. Forever known as the Great New England Hurricane, an estimated 682 people lost their lives and over 57,000 homes were either damaged or destroyed.
