An Eleanor Roosevelt Quote

Eleanor Roosevelt is a favorite historical figure to many Americans. Her great wit is one reason why:

I had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalog: "No good in a bed, but fine against a wall."

When did she say that? It's difficult to imagine the overly puritanical Eleanor Roosevelt saying such a thing, especially out loud.
