    Theodore Roosevelt as Vice President Typed Letter Signed, one page, 8.25" x 11", Colorado Springs, February 18, 1901, to Earl Marble, Denver, Colorado. Regarding an editorial, the soon-to-be president writes in part, "...Let me say that I particularly like the editorial on page 4, where you speak of my being a sportsman. I am a thorough believer in vigorous manly out-door sports, but when they become, instead of a past time, a permanent business, or whenever they interfere with serious work, then they are a sure sign of decadence." Light soiling, smoothed folds. Fine condition. A magnificent statement by a president renowned for his prowess as a hunter. Ex. Henry E. Luhrs Collection.
