Letter from Henry Cabot Lodge to Theodore Roosevelt

Description:

Senator Lodge encloses a letter from Herbert H. D. Peirce that shows Peirce's request is much less than Lodge supposed. He supports Theodore Roosevelt's decision to stay silent regarding his intentions towards the presidential nomination. In a handwritten postscript, Lodge discusses the likely outcome of upcoming votes in the Senate. He believes the Root resolution will carry and his own amendment will be beaten. If both are beaten, he cannot vote for the treaties because they would cause misunderstandings rather than promote peace between nations.

Letter from Henry Cabot Lodge to Theodore Roosevelt

Description:

Senator Lodge responds to a note from President Roosevelt, urging him to vote for Senator Borah's bill regarding the Children's Bureau. Lodge explains he has always supported the bill and will vote for it, and he does not understand why Borah thought it necessary to apply to Roosevelt to appeal to him.

A handwritten postscript critiques the diary of Gideon Welles, former secretary of the navy for the United States. The more Lodge reads of the diary, the less he thinks of it, as it reveals the true nature of its author and the "evil influence" he had over President Johnson.
