Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Emily Tyler Carow

Description:

Theodore Roosevelt approves of Emily Tyler Carow's actions after the outbreak of war in Europe and hopes that Italy will not be drawn into war. He understands Carow's desire to stay in Italy and will not try to influence her as there appears to be no imminent danger. Roosevelt is distressed at the "awful cataclysm" in Europe and describes what is happening in Belgium as "enough to wring a man's soul." The Roosevelt family is doing well. Kermit and Belle Roosevelt have been staying at Sagamore Hill before traveling to South America and Roosevelt has been able to see his other children and grandchildren often. In a postscript, Roosevelt asks Carow to thank the consul general at Genoa, Italy for his courtesy and efficiency towards Americans in his province.

Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Ethel Roosevelt Derby

Description:

Theodore Roosevelt knows that Ethel Roosevelt Derby and Richard Derby are having a difficult time, but he thinks of them often and is proud of their efforts. Roosevelt is sick of the Wilson administration's neutrality and has said so in an article. Richard Derby, Jr., has been a great comfort and they call him "Littlejohn Bottlejohn." As Roosevelt expected, the Progressive Party went down in an "utter and hopeless defeat." He doesn't believe that the Progressives can remain a party for much longer, and he will be relieved when the party disbands. They are concerned about Kermit and Belle Roosevelt and hope the newlyweds boarded the earliest possible ship.
