Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Archibald B. Roosevelt

Author:
Roosevelt, Theodore, 1858-1919
Date:
1918-04-20
Description:
Theodore Roosevelt is receiving information about Archibald Roosevelt from a variety of sources and is pleased that Archie has moved to the Red Cross hospital in Paris, France. If suggested by his superiors, Roosevelt hopes that Archie will agree to return home to convalesce. He offers Sagamore Hill to serve as Archie's "headquarters" if he returns home. Spring is slowly arriving and the electric lights installation is almost complete. Roosevelt is frustrated at not being able to help the war effort and disappointed with the "governmental dawdling and fussy inefficiency."
