Letter from Montgomery Schuyler to Theodore Roosevelt


Library of Congress Manuscript Division


Montgomery Schuyler thanks President Roosevelt for nominating his son to the vacant secretaryship in Saint Petersburg. He mentions that his son is mainly interested in scholarly pursuits at the time, but that he hopes this diplomatic position will start his career. At the least he hopes that his son will not cause Roosevelt to regret the decision. Schuyler mentions a kinsman, Eugene Schuyler, who forty years previously was much like his son, and sought and obtained the same post as a student.

Creation Date:



Schuyler, Montgomery, 1843-1914


Roosevelt, Theodore, 1858-1919
