Theodore Roosevelt writes a short note to the Secretary of the Interior after uncovering corruption on western Indian reservations
n.p. Autograph Note Signed, "T. Roosevelt," one page, 3.25" x 1.75" card, no place, [January 1893] to Secretary of the Interior, John Willock Noble(1831 - 1912). Roosevelt, then a member of the United States Civil Service Commission writes a short note to the Interior Secretary: "Sorry to miss you: I had a most pleasant and interesting tour round the Indian reservations." Fine condition. Roosevelt had made a well-publicized inspection tour of western Indian reservations where he uncovered rampant corruption. In October 1892, Roosevelt released a report accusing federal employees on the reservations of blackmail and political corruption and referred the case to the Justice Department [Blackmailing in Politics, New York Times, 10/14/1892]. We're unsure if Roosevelt was being teasingly sarcastic toward Noble as the Department of the Interior did oversee the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
