Typed Letter Signed as President with holograph correction, on White House stationery, 1 page 4to folded sheet, Washington, D. C., October 14, 1905
President Roosevelt writes to Judge George C. Holt (1843-1931), nominated by Roosevelt and confirmed as US District Judge in New York to discuss the politics of a district attorneyship. The President also makes reference to William Howard Taft (1857-1930) 27th US President and 10th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, who served at the time as Secretary of War; Elihu Root (1845-1937) who served as Secretary of State at the time of our letter; William Henry Moody (1853-1917) Attorney General when Roosevelt wrote this letter then Associate Justice of the Supreme Court in December 1906. Roosevelt writes, "Whitney has written Secretary Taft a strong protest against Morris. If you are willing, as this district attorney-ship is a very important matter, I shall ask you and Judge Townsend to come on here early in November...when I can have Secretary Root and Attorney General Moody here...." Roosevelt crosses out "here" and hand writes, "to meet you," above. He wants to find out what Root and Moody think." Signed in a strong hand, "Theodore Roosevelt." The reference to Judge Townsend is likely to William Kneeland Townsend whom Roosevelt promoted in 1902 to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Horizontal fold.
