Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Kermit Roosevelt


Harvard College Library


Theodore Roosevelt writes his son Kermit, looking back over his political career, including the reasons he broke with the Republican Party and worked with the Progressive Party. Roosevelt is ready to fight the libel suit brought against him by William Barnes, Jr., owner and publisher of the Albany-Union newspaper. Roosevelt is upset that Scribner's changed the title of his recent book Through the Brazilian Wilderness. Roosevelt went with Ted to give a speech at the City Bank.
