Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Archibald B. Roosevelt


Harvard College Library


Theodore Roosevelt has been hospitalized due to complications related to the abscesses and fever he acquired on the Brazilian trip. He is comfortable and receiving "devoted attention." When it appeared that he may not recover, the public was suddenly concerned about him and the fact that there would be no one left to speak the truth about the military situation. Roosevelt received the draft of Archibald Roosevelt's letters compiled by Grace Lockwood Roosevelt and believes them worthy of publication. He regrets that his illness prevents him from seeing Grace, who is pregnant. Roosevelt wants to see Generals Bliss, Crozier, and Sharpe removed from their positions for being "miracles of incompetency" during the lead up to the war.
