Letter from Edith Kermit Carow Roosevelt to Kermit Roosevelt

Roosevelt, Edith Kermit Carow, 1861-1948
Edith Kermit Carow Roosevelt has her husband Theodore Roosevelt write a letter for her to their son Kermit Roosevelt because she is still too weak to hold a pen after having an operation. She says she loves Kermit's letter and keeps it under her pillow. She adds that she knows he has been good with Mame and asks Kermit to give Ethel Roosevelt Derby and Archibald Roosevelt a kiss for her.
