Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Reuben T. Durrett

Description:

Commissioner Roosevelt appreciates Colonel Durrett's criticisms. He agrees that Mr. Marshall and Mr. Green's comments should be left out. Roosevelt will also incorporate some of Durrett's language regarding the Yazoo grants. He hopes that it was made clear that he doesn't implicate Mr. Brown and Mr. Innes with corruption. Roosevelt agrees that a hundred years ago he would have joined Durrett on an expedition to "wrest Louisiana from the Spaniards." He might even be willing to currently join a "general national buccaneering expedition" to remove the Spaniard from Cuba or the British from Canada. He also favors the annexation of Hawaii.
