Letter from Melvin Grigsby to Theodore Roosevelt

Grigsby, Melvin, 1845-1917
Melvin Grigsby encloses some clippings and has experienced several Democrats declaring themselves "Roosevelt men," which is a "half-way place on the road from Democracy to Republicanism."  One of Grigsby's comments when introducing President Roosevelt, which mentioned former Governor Lee, has created a small controversy.
