Letter from John Burroughs to Theodore Roosevelt


Library of Congress Manuscript Division


John Burroughs was very interested to hear Buffalo Jones and the Yellowstone grizzly bears with tin cans stuck on their feet. If President Roosevelt has read any of his latest articles, Burroughs would be glad to receive his thoughts and criticism. Burroughs is considering buying a farm in the southern Catskill region and offers it as a place of rest for Roosevelt and his family.
