Mapes Dodge requests that Governor Roosevelt write for St.
Nicholas Magazine a brief paper on citizenship, national duty,
and patriotism “for growing boys to cherish.” She turns
to Roosevelt in particular for this task because he is “truly
admired and honored in their hearts as a man and a patriot.”
The magazine would pay $100 per 1000 words, and Dodge hopes for a
completed article of 3000 words within the next 5 weeks.
