Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Anna Roosevelt Cowles

Author:
Roosevelt, Theodore, 1858-1919
Date:
1908-06-22
Description:
President Roosevelt is pleased with the results of the convention and with how Henry Cabot Lodge performed; however, he is already looking forward to his trip to Africa once he leaves office. Consistent with his approach to life in general, Roosevelt does not want to simply go along for the ride. Rather, he wants it to be a scientific trip. His sons are back in Washington, and Theodore Roosevelt Jr. is happy to be out of school and working.
