Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to William Warland Clapp

Author:
Roosevelt, Theodore, 1858-1919
Date:
1884-10-21
Description:
Theodore Roosevelt writes to the editor of the Boston Journal William Warland Clapp in response to a letter Horace White wrote to the New York Times. White reported off the record remarks made after James G. Blaine was nominated at the Republican convention in Chicago over the candidate Roosevelt supported, George F. Edmunds. Roosevelt writes that what he said was in a private conversation while feeling bitterly angry about the defeat. He says that White garbled his words and is upset he would choose to publish them.
