Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to John Scott Keltie

Description:

Theodore Roosevelt appreciates the work of the Royal Geographical Society and John Scott Keltie on the maps from the Roosevelt-Rondon Scientific Expedition. The work of Dr. Muller and Colonel Rondon deserved to be recognized by the leading geographical magazine and society. Confidentially, the Brazilian preparations for the trip were poor and Roosevelt believes Kermit Roosevelt and Anthony Fiala could have organized a better, faster, and more comfortable journey. He blames many of the problems on the Latin American desire for "splendor," such as Rondon's refusal to walk, which wouldn't be in "splendid style," and free up space for more supplies on pack animals. The lack of supplies forced the expedition to use half rations after reaching the river. Roosevelt didn't make information like this public as his companions were "fine fellows" and the trip couldn't have been completed without them.

Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to J. D. Haseman

Description:

Theodore Roosevelt cautions J. D. Haseman that Haseman's personal experience with piranhas isn't enough to ignore the facts regarding piranhas attacking men and animals. If this is Haseman's state of mind, he isn't fit to "write a scientific book worth reading." Scientists with more experience have stated that piranhas attack people. Roosevelt has personally viewed attacks while in South America. Haseman has a reputation for having a bad temper and ignoring facts. If he ignores the facts about piranhas his scientific work cannot be taken seriously.
