Featuring over 1,000 letters to such influential addressees as Jefferson Davis, Frederick Remington, John Muir, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, Rudyard Kipling, Upton Sinclair, Booker T. Washington, Jane Addams, Oliver Wendell Holmes, and a who's who of presidents?William McKinley, Grover Cleveland, Woodrow Wilson, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt?this compilation fully illuminates the private and public personas of one of the most accomplished men in American history.
