[John Henry Smith]

Washington, D.C.

Ben E. Rich and Myself in company with Senator Thos. Kearns called upon President Theodore Roosevelt. He received us with open arms and expressed his personal regard for us and said he would do anything he could for us and that the proposed Constitutional amendment [against polygamy] should not go through.
