Letter from John Burroughs to Theodore Roosevelt


Library of Congress Manuscript Division


John Burroughs' trip to Oyster Bay has been put off until September. Burroughs has recently spotted gold finches in an adjoining pasture. Burroughs mentions a few essays and books he is in the process of reading, and also addresses politics. He likes the Democrat's platform better than the Republican platform. He doesn't know why he "can't get up more enthusiasm over Taft."
