Letter from Caroline S. Spencer to Theodore Roosevelt

Spencer, Caroline S.
Caroline S. Spencer sends a book that may interest President Roosevelt. She thought of Roosevelt as she read it because the author uses terms like "strenuous" which characterize Roosevelt’s speech. She also fulfills a promise she made eighteen months earlier, that when he entered the White House she would tell him what she telegraphed him when he became Governor of New York. She only reveals that she signed the telegram "Mascot."
