Typed Letter Signed: "Theodore Roosevelt", 1p, 6¾x7¼. The Outlook, Office of Theodore Roosevelt, New York, 1913 March 25. To The Hon. Laurence O. Murray, Washington, D. C. In full: "Your appointment is one of the things to which I look back with most satisfaction. I will gladly read that address. You have done most admirable work. Faithfully yours," By 1910, after only one year of the Taft presidency, Roosevelt became increasingly unhappy with what he regarded as Taft's disloyalty and his abandonment of Progressivism. On August 31, 1910, Roosevelt delivered an address at Osawatomie, Kansas, outlining what he called the "New Nationalism", separating his brand of Progressivism from Taft's. On November 4, 1910, he delivered a policy address before the Iowa State Teachers' Association in Des Moines. TR's travels and speeches around the country were extensively reported in the press. Most likely this letter was written in response to a letter of support. From 1909-1914, Roosevelt was a contributing editor at "The Outlook" magazine. Fold creases not at signature. Fine condition.
