Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Frank M. Chapman
Theodore Roosevelt writes Frank M. Chapman of his wish that he could work exclusively as a naturalist -- or the more modern "biologist." He will look at Camps and Cruises, page 235, to see how Chapman views the relationship between color and haunt and may include a few sentences if the galley proofs of Roosevelt's article arrive. Roosevelt is "well aware that there are plenty of men who could have done this criticism much better" and he would rather do the work than have it left undone. He encloses a page to go in an appropriate place and will include a long footnote to address Thayer's Popular Science Monthly criticism, even though Thayer's opinion changes from one page to another.
