Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Milton Dwight Purdy
Theodore Roosevelt tells Milton Dwight Purdy that he does not see much of a future for the Progressive National Party. Roosevelt believes that to go on with it would mean taking "some good men out of associations where they might be useful, and keeping them in a smaller organization where they cannot be useful." Roosevelt also notes that the party organization has become very feeble and "impotent," and there is a "tendency to have it fall into the hands of the mere cranks."
