Notes
-  This version of Theodore Roosevelt's inaugural address is in blue typescript on twelve narrow slips of beige paper, with emendations in Roosevelt's hand in black ink. Each page is cut into a narrow horizontal strip, about 7 inches in length, ranging from about one to five inches deep. Excepting the title page, the pages are numbered one to eleven, and have holes punched at the upper left. There is also evidence that the twelve slips were once held together with a pin at the upper left corner. The text of this copy of the inaugural address is very close to that of the final version and this may have been President Roosevelt's reading copy.
