Theodore Roosevelt describes his hunting experiences, but notes that they are taking a brief break from the field to allow the naturalists to catch up with their hunting. Instead he is taking time to write home, as ordinarily his free time is filled with writing articles for Scribner's Magazine. He also mentions that he is reading his "pigskin library" and would not be able to fully enjoy the wilderness without his books. He hopes to hear news from the family, and reports that Kermit Roosevelt has developed a recklessness in regard to big game hunting.
