Typed Letter Signed ("Theodore Roosevelt") as President, to Lawrence F. Abbott of The Outlook.

Washington, D.C: December 15, 1903.

One page, on White House letterhead, marked "Personal". 4to. Bifolium. Fine Item #308809

President Roosevelt writes to his close friend and editor of "The Outlook," Lawrence Fraser Abbott (1859-1933). In full:
"My dear Mr. Abbott:
Mea culpa! I had totally forgotten about Tyner. Of course your reference was absolutely right. Sincerely yours, Theodore Roosevelt."

The letter is a response to Abbott's of December 12, in which he clarifies a reference made concerning ex-Postmaster General James N. Tyner in an "Outlook" article about a Post Office fraud case. Abbott served as Roosevelt's secretary during his 1909-10 tour of Europe and Africa, edited the volume of Roosevelt's addresses that came of the trip, wrote the entry on Roosevelt for the Encyclopedia Britannica (1911), as well as a volume of Impressions of Theodore Roosevelt (1919). After leaving office Roosevelt himself became a contributing editor to "The Outlook"
