Title:

Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Edward Sanford Martin

Collection:

Harvard College Library

Description:

President Roosevelt tells the writer Edward S. Martin that he and Mrs. Roosevelt were struck by a point in Sanford's last article that it is a wise choice to select home life instead of some alternative. Roosevelt feels the life of the "Four Hundred," the social elite in New York, is "flat as stale champagne." He found their companionship intolerable and does not feel one can permanently live that way. Roosevelt closes by describing an "all-night's expedition" with his cousins and sons.
