New York, NY, USALive Auction
Description: ROOSEVELT, THEODORE. Typed Letter Signed, to Rev. William R. Blackie, explaining that it required some years to get used to the idea of direct primaries. 1 page, 8vo, "The Outlook" stationery; moderate soiling at folds. (MRS) New York, 29 November 1910
Notes: "There is no such letter in existence. . . . [I]f it had . . . it would have been produced prior to the Saratoga Convention. I suppose it is based upon the fact that like almost all the rest of us I spent some years in getting acclimated to the idea of direct primaries, just as I spent some years getting acclimated to many other forms of governmental interference."
