This letter from R.M. Rogers of the Rogers Palace Laundry Co. was sent to Guy Guernsey, secretary of Chicago-Kent College of Law, in 1913, in search of a recent graduate for a law partnership.
Mr. Guy Guernsey Sec - Chgo Kent College of Lw Harris Trust Bldg,
I would like to talk with one of your this year's grads about a law partnership.
What I want - a young man, husky, fearless, energetic, fertile thinker, of good habits + good character - there are 3 kinds of men, (1) oppressors, (2) oppressees, (3) those with backbone enough not to be a no. 2. + principle enough not to be no. 1.: one who allows no one to prevent him getting what belongs to him - it's a No. 3. I want
Yours truly, RM Rogers
