Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Corinne Roosevelt Robinson

Roosevelt, Theodore, 1858-1919
Theodore Roosevelt writes that he received his sister's letter from India and looks forward to sharing it with Edith Kermit Carow Roosevelt. He recounts Kermit Roosevelt's strengths and weaknesses as a hunter and athlete and writes that the expedition has been a success. Roosevelt also writes that he is happy his son, Theodore Roosevelt, is engaged to Eleanor Butler Alexander, but notes his dislike of her father. Roosevelt mentions that he will likely become involved with politics when he gets back, and he does not like the current political outlook.
