- Governor Hadley met with Frank Knox regarding whether Theodore Roosevelt should make a public statement on his willingness to accept the Republican presidential nomination if offered. In Missouri, a statement is not necessary as the party has inferred that Hadley's support for Roosevelt means that Roosevelt will accept the nomination. Hadley and Knox have concluded that the ambiguity of Roosevelt's position is out of place with the frank way he has dealt with political questions in the past. They also believe that a lack of direction is preventing potential leaders of the Roosevelt campaign from acting. Hadley suggests that a letter signed by several supportive governors would be a "dignified and proper method" of announcing Roosevelt's position.
