1903 November 7. Jacob A. Riis ALS to [Elgin R. L. Gould]; Joliet, Illinois.
New York mayoral election: "Well, we were licked, weren't we? And we shall have to work so much the harder. In the end we can't lose, and that which you and your colleagues have contributed to the betterment of New York no one can take from us. It is permanent. I would rather go under a hundred times with the record of the [Seth] Low administration than with … Tammany." Recommends Mrs. Heath for employment at his firm, or would appreciate direction to someone who is in need of an employee. On Hotel Munroe stationery.
