Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Prescott F. Hall

Description:

Police Commissioner Roosevelt writes to Immigration Restriction League representative Prescott F. Hall that he sympathizes with the bill Senator Lodge introduced but he can't write to Speaker of the House Reed at present because he has recently written to him on other issues and feels he has reached a limit. He adds that if Cabot can't get Reed in favor of the bill then Roosevelt certainly can't.
