Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to William Smith Bryan

Description:

President Roosevelt thanks William Smith Bryan for giving him the opportunity to read sketches from Fitz-Mac (probably Political Portraits, published that year). He enjoyed reading them, as some of the points made in the articles were ones that he himself has tried to make. Roosevelt believes that devotion to what Fitz-Mac terms "'bric-a-brac' (not only in furniture, but in literature and habits of thought as well)" is ignoble and is to blame for misgovernment. Roosevelt hopes to meet Fitz-Mac at some point, however, as there are several points he did not agree with, including the influence of money in elections.

Letter from Henry Cabot Lodge to Theodore Roosevelt

Description:

Senator Lodge tells President Roosevelt that he visited Wayne MacVeagh.

Lodge also suggests a future meeting between Secretary of State John Hay and Reyes.
