Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Quentin Roosevelt

Author:
Roosevelt, Theodore, 1858-1919
Date:
1917-10-08
Description:
Grace Lockwood Roosevelt visited, and Flora Whitney came to see her. Flora wrote a nice note in response to the book she received from Theodore Roosevelt and is "just as good as she's pretty." Roosevelt's trip through the northwest ended in fine style with large, enthusiastic crowds. He is opposing Germany in the war as they are an "abhorrent foe." However, he also believes that Great Britain preferred an American policy of feebleness rather then strength. Roosevelt wants the United States to "prepare her own strength." He has also been speaking in New York about the war and campaigning for Mayor Mitchel.
