- Theodore Roosevelt shares his thoughts with Anna Roosevelt Cowles about the military preparations for the impending war. He suggests that William Sheffield Cowles should enlist at Plattsburgh, where Archibald Roosevelt and Theodore Roosevelt Jr. have completed their two years of training and are now available for deployment in the case of war. Roosevelt states that all young men are duty-bound to serve the country in this way. He has volunteered his own services to the Secretary of War. Roosevelt and his wife Edith are planning an eight-month trip to Polynesia the following year. He mentions an article he has written about Canada's lesson to the United States in the current issue of Metropolitan.
