Roosevelt here seems to be referencing this letter in which he denies a quotation calling it an "absurd untruth", the exact words he used in Congress.


Theodore Roosevelt Handwrites:


"Dear Judge 
As I am holding court, will you pardon this scrawl Of course it isn't true; it is an absurd untruth; I never said anything even remotely resembling it, and never made any statement which could be twisted into it. It is a pure invention, you are very welcome to use this in any way you please. Sincerely yours 
Theodore Roosevelt".
