Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Henry Cabot Lodge
President Roosevelt received Senator Lodge's letter and has already sent a letter to McDonald, likely referring to William Jesse McDonald. He also encloses his letter to Secretary of War Elihu Root. He informs Lodge that Governor Brodie of Arizona appointed Ben Daniels as the warden of the Arizona Penitentiary, both men former Rough Riders. When Roosevelt told John Hay of that fact, Hay responded, "Set a Rough Rider to catch a thief!"
