Letter from Herschel V. Jones to Theodore Roosevelt

Description:

Herschel V. Jones expresses concern that suing the Northern Securities Company under the Sherman Act is being perceived in Minnesota as President Roosevelt allying himself with Minnesota Governor Samuel Rinnah Van Sant.

He does not object to Roosevelt's action but opposes an alliance with Governor Van Sant.
