Theodore Roosevelt informs his sister that he is taking a day off from hunting to allow the naturalists to catch up with their work. He writes that the trip has been a success and they have acquired many specimens for the museum. Roosevelt praises Kermit Roosevelt's hunting skills and mentions that they are both in good health and have avoided fever. Roosevelt looks forward to seeing his wife soon and writes that the pigskin library remains a source of comfort for him.
