THEODORE ROOSEVELT
Theodore Roosevelt sends his regrets that he will not be able to come for a tour at a personal home as time does not permit it.
Typed Letter Signed: "Theodore Roosevelt" as President, 1p, 7x6½. The White House, Washington, 1908 November 23. To an unnamed General. In full: "I wish it were possible for me to accept, but there simply is not a chance. I shall have to go straight to the ceremonies and straight back to Washington. I sincerely regret not being able to visit you in your own home. It was such a pleasure to have dear Mrs. [] and you at lunch the other day. Faithfully yours." The name after Mrs. has been erased. Two days later, President Roosevelt spoke at the ceremonies dedicating the General Philip H. Sheridan Statue by Gutzon Borglum in Dupont Circle. Borglum later sculpted the faces of Roosevelt, Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln on Mount Rushmore. Lower portion of letter, probably containing the recipient's name and address, has been neatly cut off. Lightly rippled. Slightly soiled.
