WILLIAM H. TAFT
William Taft answers a letter about Lindon Bates.
Typed Letter Signed: "Wm H. Taft" as Secretary of War, 1p, 5¼x8¾. Washington, D.C., 1906 December 15. To Chas. H. Gray, Esq., ("My dear Mr. Gray") New York City, New York. In full: "I have your letter of Monday. When you refer to the criticism that comes from Lindon Bates as anything of importance, I am afraid you have not taken Mr. Bates gauge. Sincerely yours," William Howard Taft (1857-1930) was Governor of the Philippines (1901-1904), Secretary of War (1904-1909), 27th of the United States (1909-1913) and Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court (1921-1930). His bruising convention battle with former ally and patron Theodore Roosevelt in 1912 split the Republican Party, allowing the election of Democrat Woodrow Wilson. Taft as President was caught in the middle between progressives and conservatives and constrained by a more limited view of Presidential powers than TR had possessed, but historians tend to view his term of office more positively than did most of his contemporaries. His skills as Chief Justice are widely recognized. Fold crease not at signature. Lightly soiled. Ink note (unknown hand) at bottom left corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
