The Tar Baby and the Tomahawk: Race and Ethnic Images in American Children's Literature, 1880-1939


Dear Uncle Remus:

I enclose herewith one dollar, my subscription for Uncle Remus' Magazine.

Now, can't you come up to Washington and give me the very real pleasure of having you dine at the White House? I have set my heart on it. I wish you would bring Miss "Clinton Daingerfield" with you, and any others of Uncle Remus' people who will come. Do try to do this.

Faithfully yours, Theodore Roosevelt
Mr. Joel Chandler Harris, 312 Gordon Avenue, Atlanta, Georgia.
