Description: FDR SEEKS TITLE TO VACATION RETREAT CAMPOBELLO ROOSEVELT, FRANKLIN D. Typed Letter Signed, to real estate agent Gorham Hubbard, Jr., inquiring about the joint ownership of land on Campobello Island and, in a postscript, asking what has been done to reassess the value of the property, since the purchase price is only 10% of the $50,000 assessment. 1 page, 4to, "Fidelity and Deposit" stationery; marked marginal discoloration, horizontal folds. (MRS) New York, 28 May 1928
"Mr. Merriman writes that you are ready to close the title to the property of the Campobello estates.
"I enclose my check to your order for $1,000. Please let me know exactly in what capacity purchasers are taking title, I suppose we are joint owners. Also, what is the situation in regard to Fred Adams taking a separate title to the land between the Glenseven and the old Herring Cove?"
