Question 5

Whose name fills in the blank?

"Future President ____________'s cattle ranch near Medora, Dakota Territory was among those hit hard by that winter. In a letter to his friend, Henry Cabot Lodge, [he] remarked:
Well, we have had a perfect smashup all through the cattle country of the northwest. The losses are crippling. For the first time I have been utterly unable to enjoy a visit to my ranch. I shall be glad to get home.'"

He wrote his sister in a similar vein:
I am bluer than indigo about the cattle; it is even worse than I feared; I wish I was sure I would lose no more than half the money ($80,000) I invested out here. I am planning to get out of it.
