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 Kermit Roosevelt

Description:

Theodore Roosevelt has received Kermit Roosevelt's letter about visiting Sao Paolo, Brazil, and everyone was interested in reading about Kermit and Belle Roosevelt setting up their new home. The book about the Roosevelt-Rondon Scientific Expedition has been sent to all members of the expedition through the Brazilian ambassador. Roosevelt describes the "delightful Xmas" at Sagamore Hill with all of his children, except Kermit, and three grandchildren. He reflects on the war and views Germany as "clearly ahead" and Austria growing stronger. Roosevelt admires German efficiency, which is greater than the efficiency of the Allies, and the Allies are infinitely more efficient than the United States. President Wilson and Secretary Bryan are the "worst creatures" to lead the nation in foreign affairs. Roosevelt believes the United States should have countered the "unscrupulous" behavior of Germany and intervened on behalf of Belgium. He has signed a three year contract with Metropolitan Magazine to publish his social and political views.
