Description:
Theodore Roosevelt was visited by LeRoy Percy and Dr. Lambert, both of whom had just seen Archibald Roosevelt. They spoke with admiration of Archie and Ted Roosevelt. Each recommended that Archie be sent home to recuperate as he would recover and return to service quicker. Roosevelt hopes that Archie will make no objection if his superiors suggest that he return home. He continues to enjoy the company of Archie's family, Grace Lockwood Roosevelt and Archibald Roosevelt. Flora Whitney has obtained permission from her father to marry Quentin Roosevelt in Europe if she can get a passport.
