- President Roosevelt encloses a card with this letter to journalist Lincoln Steffens asking any officer or employee of the government to tell Steffens anything "about the running of the government by or under officers of the Executive, that you know." Roosevelt points out he can't have his subordinates giving information about Senators or Congressmen, only things that happen in the Executive branch. He wants to see material regarding information on Senators or Congressmen that Steffens obtained from Roosevelt subordinates before it is published.
