Letter from Alfred Spring to Theodore Roosevelt

Spring, Alfred, 1851-1912
Justice Spring believes that President Roosevelt's nomination and election are assured but he believes it is important for New York to be in the "Republican column." If the New York election is about national issues, Spring is confident of a Republican victory. If state issues are prominent, the election is much more uncertain. The best national issues candidate for governor is Secretary Root and the best state issues candidate is Lieutenant Governor Higgins.
