Letter to the District Attorney of New York County Relative to the Order of the Chief of Police to Dis-Regard State Elections Bureau

State of New York
Oyster Bay, November 5, 1900

To the District Attorney of the County of New York.

Sir: My attention has been called to the official order issued by Chief of Police Devery in which he directs his subordinates to disregard the Chief of the State Election Bureau, John McCullagh, and his deputies. In view of this order I call your attention to the fact that it is your duty to assist in the orderly enforcement of the law and there must be no failure on your part to do your full duty in the matter.

Yours truly,

Theodore Roosevelt
