Letter from Henry Cabot Lodge to Theodore Roosevelt

Lodge, Henry Cabot, 1850-1924
Senator Lodge encloses a telegram from Francis B. Forbes, who has experience in China and the Philippines. Lodge suggests they take Forbes' opinion on the potential conflict with the Moros seriously. Lodge thinks that war with the Moros "should be avoided at all hazards," especially in light of the recent insurrection in Luzon.
