Booker T. Washington suggests that President Roosevelt arrange
for John S. Durham to work in Washington, D.C. Washington would
also like Roosevelt to talk with Durham about a plan "of getting
two or three strong colored men" to do "quiet, individual work
among the colored people who belong to the Tammany organization"
with the goal of convincing them to vote for the Republican
African Americans--Politics and government; Tammany Society, or Columbian Order (N.Y.)
John Singleton Mosby discusses Frank R. Pemberton's views on
what Pemberton calls President Roosevelt's "Negro Policy." Mosby
compares Roosevelt's actions to those of William H. McKinley and
Grover Cleveland, noting how Roosevelt invited Booker T. Washington
to lunch and Cleveland invited Frederick Douglass to a social
event. Mosby believes that the Tammany Democrats in New York will
vote for Judge Parker because "Cleveland is for Parker and Parker
is for the Gold Standard" and not, as Pemberton believes, "because
of the President's Negro Policy."
