Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Quentin Roosevelt
Theodore Roosevelt was depressed to hear that Thomas Hitchcock was captured by the Germans. Various information has been received regarding Archibald Roosevelt. It appears that he has been wounded and received the Croix de guerre from the French. Roosevelt encourages Quentin Roosevelt to write to Flora Whitney and her family to ask if Flora could go overseas to marry him. Roosevelt approves of them getting married, even with the potential for death and serious injury. He is confident that Flora wants to marry Quentin under any conditions. William Beebe has returned from France where he was allowed to do some "flying and bombing."
