Product Description

26th President. Typed letter signed (TLS) “T. Roosevelt“, one page, 8×10.75, October 1, 1898, to Miss May Sicardi in Brooklyn, New York, “Republican State Committee” stationery, in full:

Now that the Regiment has been mustered out, I hardly know what I can do, but I will write at once to the Commanding Officer and find out. For the pay you must write to the Adjutant General at Washington, as I have no control over that.

Moderate marginal discoloration from prior matting.

The recipient was certainly a relative of a Rough Rider, most likely one who had perished in the Spanish-American War.  The Rough Riders had mustered out on September 15, 1898.  Roosevelt would be elected Governor of New York on November 8, 1898.
