Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to A. R. Lawton
President Roosevelt requests recommendations of two young men, preferably from Colonel Lawton's regiment, that could be examined for promotion to second lieutenant. He exhorts Lawton to keep this request entirely private so he is not inundated with recommendations for unqualified men.
