LAURA D'OREMEIULX ROOSEVELT
Mrs. James Roosevelt forwards her son Nicholas' notes from the 1912 Republican National Convention to Theodore Roosevelt's biographer.
Autograph Letter Signed: "Yours very sincerely/Laura d'o Roosevelt", 1¾p, 5½x7. No place, but New York City, no year but circa 1918-1919 April 15. On her 174 East Sixty Fourth Street letterhead to author and historian William Roscoe Thayer. Begins: "My dear Mr Thayer". In full: "I am mailing you Nick's account of the 1912 Convention. Do not feel responsible as I have a bound copy and Dean Lewis had a copy made and carefully put away - It is the daily, hourly impressions of a boy of 19 scribbled on bits of paper old envelopes etc and put together at once whilst all was fresh and vivid. I had a letter from him saying it could of course be used if needed. He writes in the midst of revolution and counter revolution - most interesting." LAURA HENRIETTE D'OREMEIULX (1858-1945) married Theodore Roosevelt's first cousin, James West Roosevelt (1858-1896), on February 26, 1884. James was the son of Silas Weir Roosevelt, the oldest brother of Theodore's father, Theodore Roosevelt, Sr., who was called "Thee" or "Greatheart".

Thayer also published a number of other books, including The Life and Times of Cavour (1911, two volumes), The Life and Letters of John Jay (1915, two volumes) and George Washington (1922), and was President of the American Historical Association. At the 1912 Republican National Convention in Chicago, Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919), who had served as President from 1901-1909, and his supporters stormed out and formed the Progressive ("Bull Moose") Party to oppose Roosevelt's successor, William Howard Taft.
