Lot 29

Exceptional ALS, two pages on two adjoining sheets, 5.75 x 7.5, Sagamore Hill letterhead, May 5, 1917. Letter to Bishop Summer, in full: “I don’t know what that bill is; but most emphatically I agree with you in protecting its army from commercialized vice and forbidding all recognition of commercialized vice, and all encouragement, direct or indirect, of commercialized vice, by or in connection with the army. This is especially true of the army now to be raised. When our troops go to war our effort must be to appeal to their sense of self-respect and of duty; let us effectively endeavor to make them realize that it should be a matter of honorable obligation on them to live cleanly and decently, keeping themselves fit to be citizens when they return home and at the highest pitch of fighting capacity while the war lasts.” In fine condition.
