Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Kermit Roosevelt


Harvard College Library


President Roosevelt writes his son Kermit to say he is happy with his marks this month but still does not feel he should be leaving Groton School before his sixth year as Ted did. Roosevelt is allowing it because he does not want Kermit to feel he is favoring Ted over Kermit, but Roosevelt has already told Archie that Archie will do six years. Roosevelt says Edith hurt her leg riding, and developed an abscess and is in a wheelchair. Roosevelt's rate bill went through the Senate and he now turns his attention to the fight over the canal.
