Letter from Richard Harding Davis to Theodore Roosevelt

Collection:

Library of Congress Manuscript Division

Description:

Richard Harding Davis thanks President Roosevelt for being willing to assist in procuring an invitation for Davis to attend the coronation of King Edward VII at Westminster Abbey. Davis was able to obtain tickets on his own. However, it turns out to have been a wasted effort as the coronation was postponed when King Edward contracted appendicitis. Davis describes his reason for admiring the king's courage in delaying the coronation, although it appears to be an unpopular decision.
