Roosevelt, Theodore, 1858-1919
Date:

Description:
Theodore Roosevelt is overjoyed with the birth of Archibald Roosevelt's son, also named Archibald. He regrets he was unable to see Grace Lockwood Roosevelt before the baby was born, but Ethel Roosevelt Derby was there for the birth. After protests from William Emlen Roosevelt, Roosevelt has changed his mind about publishing Archie's articles. He fears that the War Department could identify Archie as the author and cause him trouble. Roosevelt encloses a complimentary letter he received from one of the men in Archie's company.
