Letter from Addison Thomas to George B. Cortelyou

Description:

Addison Thomas believes that there is too much Catholic influence in Washington and at the White House, including widespread Catholic plans to influence American policy and leaders. Thomas claims the United States is a Protestant nation and should remain so. He mentions that he is upset that the Administration gave Episcopalian Bishop Whipple's work among the Indians to the Roman Catholics.  Visits by Catholic delegations to Washington concern him.  Thomas points out that this was not the case under previous presidents, but President Roosevelt allows visits and appoints some Catholics to posts.

Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Thomas E. Watson

Description:

Theodore Roosevelt is disappointed that Thomas E. Watson has such "violent feeling" towards Catholics, which he doesn't believe is compatible with the "real and full belief in our American institutions." He would consider himself an unworthy citizen if he failed to treat each citizen with "absolute disregard of his creed." Roosevelt defends religious freedom and will "fight the battle of decency" without regard for a person's religion or opposition to him.
