Typed letter signed, one page, 7,25 x 10,5 inch, `State of New York - Executive Chamber - Albany` letterhead, 1.04.1899, to Hon. Binger Herman (Commissioner of the Land Office) in Washington, D.C. - concerning "the case of Guy Waring of Winthrop", signed in dark ink "Theodore Roosevelt", attractively mounted (removable) for fine display with a photograph, shows Theodore Roosevelt in a half length portrait (altogether 16,5 x 11,75 inch), with a intersecting mailing folds, a few stains to the edges, and trimmed edges- in fine condition. "My dear Mr. Herman: I would be very much obliged if you would look personally into the case of Guy Waring of Winthrop, Okanogan County, State of Washington. He is an old college friend of mine and a man quite incapable of doing anything that is not square and above board. He seems to be in some trouble about his store which he has built at great expense on what is now claimed to be desert land. He writes that Thorp, the Inspector that came out there seemed to be entirely satisfied, and that he himself drew up the statement on account of which the claim that it is desert land is made, at Thorp`s own suggestion. It seems to be a case of great hardship and I very much wish you would look into it. Very sincerely yours, - Theodore Roosevelt"
