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

Dear Uncle Remus:


The enclosed letter is for publication if you deem it wise and not if you do not deem it wise. How are you and your son and Marquis and all the rest of them? Give them all my warm regards. I send the enclosed not only for myself but for my two aides, Archie Butt and Fitzhugh Lee.

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