TLS, one page, 8.5 x 11, Metropolitan letterhead, December 5, 1916. Letter to Frederick Almy. In part: “I hate to say it is not possible for me to make the speech you ask of me. Since election I have received from thirty to fifty requests to speak, every week. Many of these speeches I would genuinely like to make but it is not easy for me to prepare a speech. I work slowly and with difficulty, and I loathe speaking unless it is ‘borne in on me to testify,’ as our Methodist brethren say. I have had to refuse to undertake any new speeches for the next eight or ten months to come.” A notation in another hand indicates that Roosevelt was requested to speak at the National Conference of Social Work. Mounted to a heavy piece of cardstock and in very good to fine condition, with scattered light soiling and staining.
