Author:
Pinchot, Gifford, 1865-1946
Date:
1910-08-18
Description:
If Gifford Pinchot cannot get the names engraved, he will send the bronze lion to Theodore Roosevelt. Though Roosevelt has doubts, Pinchot remains confident in the strength of progressive feeling in the nation but agrees that the Republican Party may be beaten in the New York state elections. Regardless of the outcome, Pinchot feels that Roosevelt can afford to be beaten on progressive issues but "cannot afford not to make the fight."
