TLS, one page, 8.25 x 10.75, Metropolitan letterhead, September 24, 1916. Letter to George E. Vincent, the president of the University of Minnesota, in full: "I thank you for your courtesy, but it is not possible for me to undertake anything else at present. You may know that I sent a letter to the American Sociological Society last year. At that time it was dealing with pacifism; and I must say that I was rather unfavorably impressed with the society which although composed of those who should be wise leaders of thought, seemed to be almost as inane on the greatest question at issue as ordinary person who have had no chance to think over the matter at all. A Society which treats pacifism as debatable ought to treat adultery as debatable. Now, my dear Mr. Vincent, I wish I could see you personally. If you are in New York, do give me a chance to see you." Roosevelt makes several emendations and adds two handwritten sentences. In very good to fine condition.

Ex. Walter R. Benjamin Autographs, March 22, 1974.
