Letter from Leslie M. Shaw to Theodore Roosevelt

Shaw, Leslie M. (Leslie Mortier), 1848-1932
Secretary Shaw writes to President Roosevelt to explain the history of the imported cigar stamp and Shaw's decision to order a new design that would be less attractive and less likely to be reused to sell domestic cigars. Shaw notes that while the design has not been implemented, Roosevelt has already been contacted by cigar manufacturers and advises Roosevelt to wait to make a decision until Shaw can address the matter.
