Letter from Benjamin F. Wright to George W. Perkins

Wright, Benjamin F.
Benjamin F. Wright argues against Governor Johnson serving as a running mate to Theodore Roosevelt for the Republican presidential nomination. He claims that Johnson removed Alden Anderson from his position as Superintendent of Banks because Anderson campaigned to be the Republican nominee for governor of California in 1910. Anderson's removal has alienated bank and business interests. Wright believes that with Johnson as a running mate Roosevelt cannot secure the California delegation to the Republican National Convention.
