Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to George von Lengerke Meyer


Theodore Roosevelt always knew George von Lengerke Meyer would do well as head of the Navy and congratulates him on his speech. Roosevelt describes the luck he has had hunting on African safari and the numbers and types of animals shot, 33 in total for Roosevelt, and 27 for his son Kermit Roosevelt. The elder Roosevelt apologizes for the short pencil-written letter and sends well wishes to Meyer's wife, Marian Alice Appleton Meyer.
