Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $446.25 (includes buyer's premium)


TLS as president signed "T. Roosevelt," one page, 6.5 x 8.25, black-bordered Executive Mansion letterhead, October 16, 1901. Brief letter to George Matthews of the Buffalo Express, in full: "I have at once requested information about the De Barry matter." Matted and framed with a large descriptive plaque and a portrait of Roosevelt to an overall size of 22.5 x 26.25. In fine condition, with two file holes to the top, and fading to Roosevelt's signature.

Composed on black-bordered stationery to reflect the nation's continued mourning over William McKinley's death just a month earlier, this letter refers to a labor conflict during the construction of the international Niagara Bridge. American labor organizations had objected to Canadian mechanics working on the US end of the bridge, arguing such work was a violation of labor law. "De Barry" was a US inspector in Buffalo, New York, whose investigation of the matter concluded no such infringement had taken place. Great associative content between the presidency and big labor.
