Letter from George B. Cortelyou to Theodore Roosevelt

Description:

If Chairman Cortelyou did not know President Roosevelt well, he would resent his letter concerning the Northern Securities case. He is concerned about the insinuations in the letter because Roosevelt's "correspondence will naturally be published someday." He assures Roosevelt that his actions in the Northern Securities case have not deviated from Roosevelt's position and that he is conducting Roosevelt's reelection campaign on "as high a plane" as Roosevelt has conducted the affairs of his office. Cortelyou may use "the unspeakable blackguard from the northwest" in his work.
