Letter from Frederick Zadok Rooker to Theodore Roosevelt
The Bishop of Jaro, Philippines, Frederick Z. Rooker, informs President Roosevelt of the new Philippine Independent Church, known as the Aglipayan Church after its founder, which was created in schism with Rome and about which Rooker expresses deep reservations. Rooker also criticizes Philippine Governer-General Taft for being overly accommodating to the Aglipayans. Rooker specifically requests the establishment of a strong American governmental presence in the Philippines, that the "insurrectos" currently holding political office be removed, and that all former Catholic Church property be restored.
