Joseph Gurney Cannon to Henry Bourne Joy

Joseph Gurney Cannon, R-Ill, Speaker of the House, 1903-1911

Speaker’s Room,

House of Representatives,

Washington, D.C.

March 26, 1910

My dear Sir:-

Please accept my thanks for your favor of 24th inst. I appreciate your kind words of approcal [sic] and esteem.

In my opinion, it is better to fight and fail, keeping the faith of the party, than it is to win at the sacrifice of Republican principles.

Again thanking you, I am, with respect, etc.,

Yours truly,

[Illegible signature of Joseph Gurney Cannon]
