Theodore Roosevelt writes a letter of thanks to Harold J. Howland for coming out to vote even though he was injured.
Typed Letter Signed: "Theodore Roosevelt", 1p, 6¾x7½. New York, 1912 November 12. On letterhead of "The Outlook" to Harold J. Howland. In full: "I am greatly concerned to learn that you are still laid up. It was fine your coming out to vote. Give my warmest regards to Mrs Howland and with all good wishes, I am, Faithfully your friend." HOWLAND, of Montclair, New Jersey, had served as an alternate delegate to the 1912 Republican National Convention in Chicago. On June 19, 1912, he walked out of the convention with other Roosevelt supporters after President Taft was re-nominated and helped organize the Progressive Party. At the Progressive Party convention, held in Chicago from August 5-7, 1912, ROOSEVELT received its presidential nomination. On November 5, 1912, Democrat Woodrow Wilson (435 electoral votes) defeated both Roosevelt (88 votes) and Taft (8 votes). In this letter, written just a week after the election, Roosevelt thanks Howland for voting for him. In 1921, two years after TR's death, Howland wrote Theodore Roosevelt and His Times: A Chronicle of the Progressive Movement. It was republished in 1972 and 1992. Lightly creased. Transfer of letterhead and pinhead-size stain at lower blank margin. Overall, fine condition.
