Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Ethel Roosevelt Derby

Description:

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.
