Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Eugene A. Philbin


Library of Congress Manuscript Division


President Roosevelt argues that he does not favor Catholics any more than he favors Protestants, and tries to treat every person alike in public office as he does in his personal life. The United States will last for many centuries, and he hopes that Catholics elected president in the future will appreciate his actions. He supported the nomination of General Philip Henry Sheridan, a Catholic, for president in 1884. Roosevelt would like Eugene A. Philbin to read a letter written by John Henry Hammond about Roosevelt's removal of Asa Bird Gardiner.
