Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Martha Bulloch Roosevelt

Description:

Theodore Roosevelt and Alice Lee Roosevelt are having a splendid time in Liverpool, England. Irvine S. Bulloch, Roosevelt's uncle, is the "jolliest, kindest host." Roosevelt has been discussing naval history with his other uncle, "the blessed old sea-captain" James Dunwody Bulloch. He has convinced him to publish a work regarding "naval operations abroad" during the American Civil War. Bulloch was a Confederate agent in Great Britain and managed these operations.
