Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to John Hay

Roosevelt, Theodore, 1858-1919
President Roosevelt sends Secretary of State Hay a document written by Cecil Spring Rice, the British Charge d'Affaires in St. Petersburg. Roosevelt believes that Rice has not taken into account the likely scenario that the Japanese will win the Russo-Japanese War after taking Port Arthur. If Japan wins, Roosevelt suggests they might prevent interference which would "rob her of the fruits of her victory."
