Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Edward Sanford Martin
Governor Roosevelt informs Edward Sanford Martin that his son Ted is not quarrelsome; he only fights in amicable boxing and wrestling matches. Roosevelt shares his theory about the traits that make men fighters and credits his father for helping him learn self-control. He also applies the theory to countries. He loathes cruelty and injustice and has tried to pass this on to his sons. He and Mrs. Roosevelt laughed over "that article."
