Letter from August Belmont to Theodore Roosevelt


Library of Congress Manuscript Division


August Belmont makes Theodore Roosevelt aware of the state of the election in Pennsylvania. The situation is the reverse of the situation in New York. Belmont stresses the importance of keeping national issues out of the local elections and hopes that some voters can be persuaded to vote across party lines. If possible, and if it will not hurt the election in New York, Belmont thinks Roosevelt should involve himself in the Pennsylvania election.

Creation Date:



Belmont, August, 1853-1924


Roosevelt, Theodore, 1858-1919
