Letter from Herbert S. Hadley to Theodore Roosevelt

Author:
Hadley, Herbert S. (Herbert Spencer), 1872-1927
Date:
1912-02-15
Description:
President Taft's supporters have been fostering a rumor that Theodore Roosevelt has stated he would never accept the Republican nomination. Governor Hadley has heard of other underhanded political techniques being used by the Taft campaign in Missouri, and he encourages Roosevelt to declare his candidacy. He further suggests that Roosevelt put William Loeb in charge of his campaign. In Hadley's judgment, this is Roosevelt's greatest opportunity to serve the country.
