President Roosevelt Here

October 21, 1905

Summary

The people of Richmond welcome President Theodore Roosevelt with a reception described as “the grandest affair that has ever taken place in the history of the city.”

Transcription

The reception tendered President Theodore Roosevelt last Wednesday was the grandest affair that has ever taken place in the history of the city. The Reception Committee did its whole duty so far as the arrangements for his comfort and safety were concerned and he must have indeed felt proud of the fact that no-where throughout the triumphal parade did any unpleasant incidents mar the pleasure of the trip. Broad and Main streets were decorated in a manner that they had never been decorated before.
