Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Kermit Roosevelt


Harvard College Library


Theodore Roosevelt writes his son Kermit to say he is not sure his letters are reaching him and he will have to stop writing now as he will soon leave for a five week trip to the West Indies. Roosevelt is working on the proofs for his book, Fear God, and Take your own Part and has had a lot of correspondence to attend to. Roosevelt says Quentin has the grippe, Archie has been accepted into the Pudding at Harvard, and Ted and Eleanor's christening of their son Cornelius caused a disturbance in the family. He closes by commenting on how old he is and says he cannot wait for Kermit and Belle to return to New York once their baby is old enough.

Creation Date:



Roosevelt, Theodore, 1858-1919
