Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to George Bird Grinnell

Description:

Theodore Roosevelt writes George Bird Grinnell that the title of General Greely's book is Three Years of Arctic Service. Roosevelt agrees with putting the moose head on the cover of the book and if Grinnell gets short of copy, Roosevelt can give him some writing. Another idea if they are short of copy is for Grinnell and Roosevelt to write a composite article on the distribution of "big game animals of temperate North America."
