    1908 President Theodore Roosevelt Typed Signed Letter on White House Letterhead. Before becoming president, Teddy was also the vice-president, governor of New York, assistant secretary of the Navy, and New York City police commissioner. He also was a prolific writer, avid conservationist, fought in the Spanish American War, and delivered a ninety-minute speech after having been shot.

    This 1908 typed letter on White House letterhead to a bishop (wishing him success on his "bishopric") is signed in black steel-tip fountain pen by President Roosevelt. The specimen has been mounted on cardboard and the paper exhibits some browning, but the autograph is large and bold. There is a PSA/DNA authentication sticker affixed to the letter and an 10.75x8 sepia-toned photograph of Teddy included in the lot. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
