Letter from Leslie M. Shaw to Theodore Roosevelt

Shaw, Leslie M. (Leslie Mortier), 1848-1932
Secretary Shaw writes to President Roosevelt to express his confidence in the success of the Republican Presidential campaign and to say that Chief Judge Parker is not inspiring voters. He expresses his opinion that Missouri's electoral votes will go to Roosevelt, largely on anti-Wall Street feeling. He also sends his schedule for the coming week and expresses his appreciation for Roosevelt's letter of acceptance.
