Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to John St. Loe Strachey

Description:

Theodore Roosevelt comments on John St. Loe Strachey's editorials on Roosevelt's attempts as governor of New York, as president, and as a political figure to "strengthen the bonds of good will, regard, and sympathy" between the United States and England. He also talks on his former statements about the office of the presidency - how, if he had explicitly stated that he did not believe in a president's holding a consecutive third term, then all his enemies would have believed he was announcing his bid for a second term before the first had finished. Likewise, Roosevelt believes that he could not honorably back out of his current presidential campaign due to a desire for moderate progress akin to George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, William Pitt, Thomas Babington Macaulay, and the Whigs of the reform bill.
