The libel suit is over and Theodore Roosevelt won. The trial was
in Marquette, Michigan, and Roosevelt stayed with George Shiras.
Roosevelt's witnesses were "good fellows" and he was touched by
their devotional zeal. The trial lasted six days and the evidence
was so overwhelming that George A. Newett retracted his charge and
Roosevelt requested no damages. Edith Kermit Carow Roosevelt has
been visiting Archie and Quentin Roosevelt at Groton. Kermit
Roosevelt has joined a "big contracting company in South Brazil."
In a postscript, Roosevelt has arrived home and received Ethel
Roosevelt Derby's telegram. He knows that Richard Derby will fit in
with the family.
