Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Maria Longworth Storer

Description:

President Roosevelt would never deny a request from Maria Longworth Storer for anything but political reasons. He doesn't intend to make any changes to his Cabinet and is particularly impressed with Secretary Root. Roosevelt would take many things into consideration before appointing any man to a Cabinet position. At present, it would not be advisable to appoint a Catholic man as ambassador to Germany or Italy. If the position of ambassador to France becomes available, it could be offered to Bellamy Storer.
