Childhood Drawing by FDR Proves That Boats are Cool

From the U.S. National Archives‘ teaching website Docs Teach: this a drawing 5-year old Franklin Delano Roosevelt sent to his mother Sara in 1887. The accompanying letter reads:

“My dear mama we coasted yesterday nothing dangerous yet, look out for tomorrow!! your boy, F”

The National Archives notes that the back of the letter contained a hand-written note by FDR’s mother stating that although Franklin knew his letters, he received helped writing out the sentences.
