Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Anna Roosevelt Cowles

Roosevelt, Theodore, 1858-1919
Theodore Roosevelt has arrived safely in Lenox, Massachusetts. He ate eight sandwiches and twenty-four peaches while traveling. Uncle Hill picked them up and is glad to have "somebody to talk and swim with." Martha Bulloch Roosevelt is homesick but made friends with a Shaker named Sister Belle. Roosevelt sends his love and gives instructions on how to care for his various pets.
