Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Edmund Heller


Library of Congress Manuscript Division


Theodore Roosevelt writes to Edmund Heller that he and Kermit Roosevelt read everything with great interest, but he is concerned that the two pamphlets have not come. He worries that Lydeker [sic] or someone else will use Selous' specimens for a similar publication, which would allow the British Museum to publish first "simply because they worked it up and we did not." He asks that the pamphlets be sent now. Roosevelt will begin working on the life histories of big game for Heller's book and he may use or reject them at will. He will also send Heller the article on concealing coloration when it is completed. Roosevelt mentions that he has received an interesting letter from R.J. and one from Leslie Tarlton.
