A visit to Theodore Roosevelt at his home at Sagamore Hill

First film footage taken of Theodore Roosevelt at his home at Sagamore Hill, Oyster Bay, Long Island, during the summer of 1912. Film contains views of the house and surrounding grounds and Roosevelt reviewing his mail, assisted by his son Archie. William P. Helm, Associated Press correspondent for New York City and Washington from 1910 to 1918, who was detailed to Woodrow Wilson and Roosevelt during the 1912 campaign, speaks informally with Roosevelt under trees. The film continues with Roosevelt riding his horse, Sidar, away from Sagamore and stopping to feed the horse from his hand. Roosevelt and his dogs set out across a field with Sagamore visible in the background. Roosevelt, in white shirt and vest, chops down a tree. A band and crowd of men are seen on Sagamore grounds, and Roosevelt addresses a large group of men from Sagamore porch.
