Description:
Theodore Roosevelt shares his thoughts with Anna Roosevelt Cowles about the military preparations for the impending 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.
