Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Sarah Bancroft Leavitt

Collection:

Description:

President Roosevelt has often thought of his father and wishes the elder Theodore Roosevelt had lived to meet his grandchildren and see his son in the White House. Roosevelt notes that at the end of his term in 1905 he will be the same age his father was upon his death. Roosevelt finds that he unconsciously attempts to model himself with his children on the way his father treated him and his siblings.
