Partly-printed DS as president, one page both sides, 9 x 13.5, March 29, 1940. President Roosevelt pardons a postal embezzler, in part: "John C. Graham pleaded guilty in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of South Carolina to embezzling postal funds, making false entries in his record books and reports to the Post Office Department…Whereas it has been made to appear to me that the said John C. Graham, since his discharge from imprisonment, has been conducting himself in a law-abiding manner…I, Franklin D. Roosevelt, President of the United States of America…do hereby grant unto the said John C. Graham a full and unconditional pardon for the purpose of restoring his civil rights." Boldly signed at the conclusion by Franklin D. Roosevelt, and countersigned by Attorney General Robert H. Jackson. In fine condition, with three horizontal folds. Just the fourth FDR pardon we have offered.
