Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Anna Roosevelt Cowles

Description:

Theodore Roosevelt writes to continue a discussion with Anna Roosevelt Cowles about the need for lively pursuits at home that he compares to the French art of savoir vivre. He gives examples that Oyster Bay ought to have: a park with a bandstand, a Y.M.C.A, and tennis courts; and explains that Edith Roosevelt and Ethel Roosevelt Derby are trying to enlist some of the villagers to contribute to supplying some of these facilities. Roosevelt updates Cowles on his family's activities. Edith's fiftieth birthday was two days ago and she was delighted with her presents, which is not always the case. Roosevelt writes that sometimes she even shares his "own mother's way of looking at a present of which she does not approve." They ride and row together, and he plays tennis well.
