AN ALBUM OF SIGNED CORRESPONDENCE FROM THEODORE ROOSEVELT TO GILBERT B. DANIELS, PUBLISHER OF THE OAKLAND ENQUIRER. Roosevelt thanks Daniels, a staunch supporter, for his frequent letters and enclosures of editorials and clippings related to Roosevelt and his political causes during the period in which Roosevelt formed the Bull Moose Party and launched a challenge to the Democratic and Republican parties in the Presidential election of 1912, and during the years when he was serving as an editor for Outlook magazine. Roosevelt's bravado and confidence is on full display throughout; in a letter from August 22, 1911, for example, he writes of publisher William Randolph Hearst: "I think I have legitimately earned Hearst's antagonism, and I am proud of it." Roosevelt frequently expresses his appreciation of Daniels' support as well. From May 27, 1912: "Let me take this opportunity, my dear Mr. Daniels, of thanking you for the good work which you did to help bring about the magnificient [sic] victory in your State. It was a great triumph, and I am particularly appreciative of the way in which the women stood with us."
Also present is a document and certificate from Merchants National Bank (San Francisco) authorizing the sale of Enquirer stock to Daniels.
