Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Alice Roosevelt

Roosevelt, Theodore, 1858-1919
President Roosevelt writes his daughter Alice about how much he enjoys the new room that C. Grant La Farge created at Sagamore Hill and describes a night picnic with the boys. He is happy to have Elihu Root back in his cabinet as Secretary of State. Roosevelt draws some cartoons depicting Alice in various activities.
