Compiling his ‘Hero Tales,’ searching for pictures of “Washington,” “Grant on horseback,” and “Andrew Jackson”

ALS, three pages on two adjoining sheets, 4 x 6, black-bordered letterhead, May 23, no year but circa 1894. Letter concerning his book co-authored with Henry Cabot Lodge, Hero Tales from American History. In part: “I have sent to Lodge to know where to get the pictures of Morris and Adams…I haven’t an idea where to get a picture of the battle of New Orleans; but surely pictures of Andrew Jackson must be plenty. The Washington being the first piece, his picture might go in as the frontispiece; but perhaps the picture of Grant on horseback would be more interesting.” In fine condition. Published in 1895, Lodge and Roosevelt wrote the book ‘to remember the men who have given their lives in war and peace to the service of their fellow-countrymen.’ Among the subjects are George Washington, Daniel Boone, Gouverneur Morris, the Battle of Trenton, the Alamo, John Quincy Adams, Stonewall Jackson, and Gettysburg. A sought-after handwritten letter connecting Roosevelt with past American heroes. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
