WILLIAM H. TAFT
(1857 - 1930) Twenty-seventh President of the United States and Supreme Court Chief Justice. Good content T.L.S. as Secretary of War on official letterhead, 2pp. 4to., Washington, June 5, 1906 to Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge, then Chairman of the Committee on the Philippines. Taft mentions that the War Department has approved a draft bill making appropriations for the survey of public lands and education in the Philippines. He notes that liberal laws have made it simple for citizens to obtain lands, but the fees resulting from the registry of those lands have not been sufficient to fund surveying. Taft also mentions that despite an appropriation of one million dollars for education, it will not be sufficient to educate the two-thirds of the children not able to attend school. Toned a bit at margins, else very good.
Estimate $ 250-350
