    Theodore Roosevelt Signed Address, "Remarks of President Roosevelt to the Gloucester Fishermen." Printed on cardstock, 11" x 14". Provincetown, Massachusetts; August 20, 1907. A great example of Roosevelt's colorful language. In part: "...I have scant sympathy with the man who shirks a job because it is rough, and no sympathy whatever with the man whose hardihood has rotted out, so that he will only work at something soft and easy..." Signed in full at the end: "Theodore Roosevelt". From the Estate of Malcolm S. Forbes.
    Condition: Some age toning, a few stray spots of foxing, and light soiling. Corners are lightly bumped, and surface scrapes on verso.
