Letter from Charles Evans Hughes to Theodore Roosevelt


Library of Congress Manuscript Division


Charles Evans Hughes says the past week has been most encouraging for his campaign. Hughes tells President Roosevelt that the most significant events of the week were the demonstrations on the East Side and the meetings at Troy and Watertown. Hughes thinks that if the reports brought to him by the county chairman are trustworthy, the campaign shall have a great victory; however, Hughes is disturbed by newspaper reports of William Randolph Hearst's meetings. He fears the "great silent vote of the working-men." Hughes wishes the newspapers would print more of his declarations as to his own positions.
