Description:

Theodore Roosevelt and Kermit Roosevelt have been enjoying a four day hunt by themselves. Kermit seems older and "more developed in character." Yesterday, Kermit rode fifteen miles to meet with a local African leader and brought back a keg of honey. Tomorrow Kermit and Roosevelt will part ways for a month. It has been difficult to find food for the "huge safari" and Roosevelt is concerned about some of his mail being lost due to the distances involved.
