Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Theodore Roosevelt

Description:

The Arabian stallions weren't sent to President Roosevelt. It was a newspaper story and the horses were actually sent to the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. There might not be any horses left for Ted Roosevelt as all of Roosevelt's horses are having health issues and he currently is unable to ride. It appears that the Panama treaty will be ratified but the situation in Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) is chaotic and Roosevelt had to intervene. He hopes to defer doing more for as long as possible. Roosevelt has been paying close attention to the Russo-Japanese War. Russia had been behaving "very badly" in Asia and, secretly, Roosevelt is pleased with the early Japanese victories.
