Letter from James Sullivan Clarkson to Theodore Roosevelt

Clarkson, James Sullivan, 1842-1918
The Roosevelt administration will be supporting the Houk following in Tennessee against the Brownlow-Austin following. Houk appears to be winning the contest and Clarkson has sent instruction not to form a faction but to attempt to unify the Republican Party in Tennessee.
