Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Archibald B. Roosevelt

Author:
Roosevelt, Theodore, 1858-1919
Date:
1918-05-23
Description:
Grace Lockwood Roosevelt and Archibald Roosevelt are leaving Sagamore Hill after visiting for a month. Theodore Roosevelt is preparing for a speaking tour for the American Security League. He is finding it difficult to find the right tone for his speeches. Roosevelt can't attack the Wilson administration too much so he generally speaks frankly about the breakdowns and delays in the war effort. He believes that his efforts are having some effect speeding up the war as the administration is afraid of him and wants to neutralize his speeches.
