Letter from John Singleton Mosby to Frank R. Pemberton

Description:

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."
