Theodore Roosevelt's secretary informs George Rublee that Roosevelt is in Syracuse, New York, for his libel trial involving William Barnes and that he will forward Rublee's letter there. Roosevelt's secretary also writes that Roosevelt consulted with Juliet Barrett Rublee who had no objection to having her letter published and so the secretary gave it to the reporters.

Neither Roosevelt nor his secretary received any requests from the correspondents of the Chicago Tribune for the letter Roosevelt wrote to Juliet Barrett Rublee. John Callan O'Laughlin was given permission to publish the letter in the Chicago Herald but it was not meant to be an exclusive. Roosevelt regrets that Joseph Medill Patterson was "scooped" on the letter but neither believed the letter would be considered important. Patterson's New York correspondent should call Oyster Bay, New York, when information from Roosevelt is desired.
