Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Archibald B. Roosevelt

Author:
Roosevelt, Theodore, 1858-1919
Date:
1918-04-14
Description:
Theodore Roosevelt sends news from home to an injured Archibald Roosevelt. The family is very proud of Archie, and Roosevelt is enjoying spending time with his grandchildren. The German offensive has made it clear to the public that American forces are "helpless to give substantial aid" to their allies. American forces do not have sufficient equipment and supplies, or any immediate prospect of being properly supplied.
