A Fragmentary Theodore Roosevelt Letter Signed As President Mentioning Trump
THEODORE ROOSEVELT (1858-1919). Roosevelt was the Twenty-Sixth President of the United States.TLS. 1pg. N.d. [1905] N.p. A partial typed letter signed “Theodore Roosevelt” as President. It is addressed to Roosevelt’s friend Curtis Guild Jr. (1860-1915) as Governor-elect of Massachusetts. “What a trump Draper is! I think he is one of the very best fellows I know. If Douglas comes here as it is reported he will on Wednesday with the boot and shoe manufactures, I am going to make substantially the enclosed statement to him. Faithfully yours, Theodore Roosevelt”. Draper was probably politician and businessman Eben Sumner Draper (1858-1914), who had just been elected Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts and would eventually succeed Guild as Governor. Douglas may have been Guild’s gubernatorial predecessor William Lewis Douglas (1845-1924), who owned a shoemaking company. The fragmentary letter is faded and in fair condition generally. It is pasted to an image of Roosevelt. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
