- Albert Dexter Nortoni reminds Nicholas Murray Butler of their conversation regarding the appointment of Judge Thayer to the United State Supreme Court. Nortoni believes that Thayer's appointment could emphasize President Roosevelt's position in the Northern Securities case as Thayer presided on the case for the circuit court. The appointment would also increase Roosevelt's popularity in Missouri and, combined with infighting amongst Missouri Democrats, could deliver the state to the Republican Party.
