Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Edmund Heller

Description:

Theodore Roosevelt tells Edmund Heller that he was the man on the expedition responsible for the most valuable contributions to the collection. Roosevelt and his son Kermit grew very fond of him as well. It was a shame Heller could not join another expedition, as the big game was taken care of but nothing could be done about the smaller animals. Heller's pamphlet on insectivores is interesting and Roosevelt is honored to have a new genus named after him.
