Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Frances Theodora Dana

Description:

Theodore Roosevelt reluctantly accepted the Republican nomination for mayor of New York, New York, after being "implored" by prominent Republicans. There is no chance for success and his best hope is for a decent run. An absurd aspect of the campaign will occur when Roosevelt's article, "Machine Politics in New York City," is published. He had "great fun" in the West over the summer, including killing three "White Antelope-goats" and bringing three cattle thieves into Mandan for trial.
