Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to William C. Le Gendre

Collection:

Library of Congress Manuscript Division

Description:

President Roosevelt defends his business policies, including: the creation of the Department of Commerce, the ending of the Anthracite Coal Strike, and bringing suit against the Northern Securities Company. Roosevelt has heard a lot of "dishonest nonsense" from wealthy men that should know that Wall Street's troubles come from "watering of stocks" and speculation, not any action taken by the government. Roosevelt wants to do what is right for the business world and what is right for the world of labor.
