Description:

Theodore Roosevelt writes about his work as Police Commissioner to his sister Anna Roosevelt Cowles. It has been a strenuous ten months and he feels Governor Morton isn't strong enough to stand up to Republican boss Thomas Collier Platt and veto the bill that would eliminate Roosevelt's job. Edith has been stressed with Mame's operation and they worry over the children's education while trying to split their time between the city and Oyster Bay. Roosevelt also recently made some excellent speeches in Chicago.
